ROBERT MOSES STATE PARK - After a rainy Fourth of July, Long Island residents headed to the beach Saturday to enjoy the sunshine.

News 12 was at Robert Moses State Park Field 5, where crowds enjoyed the sun and the surf.

Monaz Donnis, of Kings Park, says it was the perfect day to go to the beach.

“The past couple of days it’s been raining. We've been stuck in the house,” said Donnis. “The kids were like, ‘That’s it! We're going to the beach.’”

With sunshine in the forecast Sunday, more crowds are expected to fill up beaches.

Multiple beaches across Long Island were closed to swimmers Saturday due to high levels of bacteria caused by storm runoff.
