10 am: During the summer, Coney Island is the place to be. Whether you want to soak the rays or have a dip in the sea. If you’d like to have a day off to relax, you can walk to the beach free of admission and enjoy playing on the sand, or in the water. However if you would like to just enjoy the view you begin your day at 5am to watch the sunrise, take a jog or feed the sea gulls.
