My favorite part of Babylon is Robert Moses Beach. It's my favorite place in the world. Plenty of parking fields to choose from with clean bathroom facilities, gift shop, and snack bar. You can walk to Kismet and enjoy the light house.

There are a lot of restaurant options in town and fun things to do. Like any other town you should be aware of your surroundings and lock your car doors.
