Sandy Hook

Sandy Hook Professional Review and Guide

"Explore a landmark rich in history at the southernmost edge of New York Harbor. Admire views of Manhattans skyline, take a dip in the Atlantic, and gain an understanding of barrier beach ecology on a fun day trip a relatively short ferry ride away from lower Manhattan."

"Starting at a historic Life-Saving Station, now a museum, we explore the thickets, the dunes, and the shore of the Sandy Hook section of Gateway National Recreation Area.

Stroll along the Atlantic Ocean and pass a freshwater pond (great for birding) and an old Nike missile base. A little bit of everything!"
