We finally got that summer feeling after going to the beach this weekend 🏖
We didn’t want to take public transit to get there so we packed light and jumped on our bikes for a 1.5-hour ride to this hidden beach in New York – Fort Tilden Beach which is an extension of Rockaway beach. It wasn’t too crowded which is why we went to this beach specifically and we just laid out, soaked up the sun and took a few dips in the ocean although I didn’t go too far since ya girl can’t swim. Very embarrassing to admit being that I’m from the Caribbean but I plan on learning eventually 😜.
Unlike more popular NYC beach destinations like Coney Island which is accessible by train (B/Q to Brighton Beach) or Rockaway Beach (A to Rockaway Beach), Fort Tilden is not easily accessible by public transportation or even by a car which makes it a more calming, less-crowded environment for those willing to take the bike ride.
