You'll need to specify whether you're looking for an ocean beach on the South Shore or a Long Island Sound (no waves to speak of ) beach on the North Shore. Will you have a car?

Meshutt Beach, which is on Great Peconic Bay (no waves) is about a thirty minute drive. It's a really great beach if you don't like waves. It's a narrow beach with calm water. There are lifeguards, restrooms, and the Beach Hut for something to eat.

Also consider Wildwood State Park on Long Island Sound, about 15 minutes from your starting point. You can see what it looks like on the park's website:

I'm not familiar with South Jamesport beach. The water there would be calm though, just as it as at Meschutt beach as it's the same bay.

I believe parking at Meschutt Beach is $15.
