This North Shore beach in Glen Cove faces Long Island Sound. Take a stroll along this unique beach and you might even find fossils. Keep your eyes open for "Indian paint pots" or concretions --- rocky clumps with a hollowed center --- that the area is known for. You'll also find clay in the bluffs leading down to the beach.
The bluffs and the boulders that are scattered throughout the beach were brought to the area as glacial deposits. To learn more about these geological features and the Native Americans that once lived in the area, you can view the exhibits at the Garvies Point Museum.
