This segment is approximately ten miles long between Tobay Beach in the Town of Oyster Bay and Captree State Park in the Towns of Babylon and Islip.
The Coastal Greenway offers views of the Great South Bay and New York City skyline and features hundreds of Long Island-native plantings, including beach grass, evergreen trees, bayberry plants, beach plums, and other native grasses and wildflowers to support pollinators such as bees and Monarch Butterfly restoration efforts. Educational panels on Long Island’s natural history are placed along the path.
New bicycle parking areas are now found at Gilgo Beach, Cedar Beach Marina, and Captree State Park.
