The Rockaways are a popular summertime spot, but surfers flock to Rockaway Beach in particular year-round, as the area contains the only two surf beaches in the five boroughs. But with miles of coastline on the Rockaway Peninsula, there's more than enough room for the non-surfing crowd, too. At Rockaway Beach, for example, there are seven playgrounds, spots for fishing, areas for volleyball and basketball and more, which provide a variety of entertainment for children and adults.
