Lake Erie Beaches New York Beaches near Buffalo NY

Beaver Island Beach (Beaver Island State Park)

Beaver Island Beach is the on Grand Island. Technically this beach is on the Niagara River, not Lake Erie. The beach is small, but it's convenient- only minutes from Buffalo.

Woodlawn Beach (Woodlawn Beach State Park)

Close and Gross! This Buffalo Beach gets closed down all the time due to toxic water that you can't go swimming in! This might have something to do with the beach's proximity to the sewage treatment plant next door.

Really cool place with beach clubs and bars, including Mickey Rats and Captain Kidds. Great spot for pickup games and beach volleyball in Buffalo. Angola, New York Beaches in this area include Evangola State Park, Wendt Beach County Park, and Bennett Beach.

Sunset Bay Beach
