Brookhaven beaches open Memorial Day Weekend to residents only


Brookhaven Town will open four major beaches for Memorial Day weekend.  Access to the beaches will be limited to Town residents only, with parking reduced by 50% to ensure social distancing at these facilities.  Beaches that will be open are:

  • Davis Park, Fire Island
  • Cedar Beach (main beach), Mt. Sinai
  • Corey Beach, Blue Point
  • West Meadow, Stony Brook

During Memorial Day weekend, the beaches will be open from 10 am – 6 pm, with all parking lot gates locked at 6:30 pm.  Residents may bring umbrellas and blankets but must maintain social distancing on the beach. 

Face masks or coverings must be worn in areas outside of the water or general beach area.  Lifeguards will be on duty, and residents can go into the water, but swimming is prohibited.    Restrooms will be open while the beaches are open and will be cleaned and sanitized by staff every hour.

Following Memorial Day weekend, beaches will have no public restroom facilities or lifeguards during weekdays.
