Located in the town of Hempstead, the communities of Wantagh and Seaford share a homeowner's association and outstanding recreational amenities. Wantagh bills itself as the gateway to Jones Beach, providing a wealth of suburban amenities and superb recreational areas in less than four square miles. Picturesque scenery, wonderful dining experiences, beaches and nature parks, and a quaint museum are among the highlights. Jones Beach, with its landmark tower and six miles of white-sand Atlantic beachfront and a shorter stretch along Zach's bay, has been a popular destination since the 1920s. Boardwalk attractions, fine food, and water-sport activities continue to make this one of Long Island's best beaches.
