Enjoy the Day at Sunset Bay Beach in Irving, NY

Are you looking for a beautiful beach to spend time with friends or family?


A friend of ours and I had been planning a fun day trip to a beach in Irving, New York called Sunset Bay Beach and it's only about a two hour drive from us so it wasn't too bad at all travel wise! We got up at 5am and left around 6:45 or 7am, and followed our friend's family to the beach to spend the day there. 


This was our kids' first time going to a beach and they loved it! Our older three were the ones who actually swam in the water, but I did get our youngest's feet wet a few times and she didn't seem to mind it much. 


The nice thing about this beach is that it's part of Lake Erie, so the water is fresh water, not salt water like the oceans are. But, this beach still had some fun and good waves to jump in. We all had a lot of fun, especially our kids. 


Our toddler had an absolute blast and didn't want to get out of the water some of the time! My husband took him in for awhile several times, and then he played in the sand for a good while too and played with a shovel to make a sand castle for himself, with his brother and sister.


This beach has some nice places right at it, which was called Cabana Sam's Bar and Grill where you can get food and a drink or specialty frozen drink, in a suvenior cup to take home. The deli we went to which was really close within walking distance of the cabana was really good; we got chicken fingers with fries for our kids, and Philly Steak and Cheese subs for us.

  2. What a great way to spend some time with family! We've gone to Lake Michigan beaches a lot but we've never spent time at a Lake Erie beach.

  6. We live by the beach in Florida. That is definitely our happy place! To me, there is no better place to be than by the water.

  8. This would be a great place to take the younger kids to enjoy playing in the sand and in the water. Since it is fresh water, there will be no stinging of the eyes. Haven't been to any of the Great Lakes yet, but would love to! We have to do this next summer.
