In the business world, no company can be successful without the full participation and commitment of every member. This can only be achieved when a team is strong, in tune and hard-working. Although day-to-day interactions are vital to developing strong relationships, nothing brings a team together like a break from the routine.
Next time you’re thinking of organizing team-building activities for your coworkers, leave the big city behind and head to Long Island, NY, for a day of relaxing, fun or challenging activities that are sure to create lasting bonds among your peers. These locations are less than 2 hours from the Royalton New York Hotel.
Nothing says relaxation like a day in the beach, but not just any beach! Known as The City by the Sea, Long Beach is the best choice for a sophisticated beach outing. It is also one of the best surfing spots on Long Island!
Book a surfing class or a Stand Up Paddleboard experience for your team at Skudin Surf. Afterwards, reserve a group table for a gourmet lunch or dinner at the Atlantica Restaurant. The beach chic ambiance and panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean come for free. Don’t forget to take a walk along the iconic boardwalk.

Another watersports-related activity is kayaking. The calm waters of Middle Bay are an ideal location for beginners and group outings. Stand Up Paddleboard, single or double sit-on-top kayaks, decked kayaks or pedal kayaks are available for rental. You can also join one of the tours of the surrounding marshes.
