  • Stayed in The Pines for about five days and spent a lot of time on this beach. Mid September is a fabulous time to be here!!! Still warm but with fabulous sunsets and sunrises. It's a must do! 
  • Really great place to experience the natural beauty of the ocean. Great trailheads at sailor's haven/ sunken forest (accessible from sayville ferries) and watch hill ( accessible from Patchogue ferries).
  • Wonderful beach. Big waves. Lots of fun. Don't try to bring alcohol, they have gaurdian posted at every beach access checking coolers and cups.
  • Pre-season camping was amazing. We had it to ourselves for the whole week. The campsites were small and close but with dense brush between. I'm sure if it were crowded you could hear everyone but it didn't appear like it would be an issue.
  • Very nice beach. Not the best on Long Island but not bad.
  • Good beach, able to escape the crowds, knowledgable rangers, 4x4 beach access for fishing in late september.
