  • 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! 
  • Fire Island is fantastic. It is very long and there are many different towns along the way. Most very family friendly, and a few geared towards the partiers I spent alot of time on 
  • 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).
  • Fire Island is a great place to go for a day. The beach is really nice, and the water clean. It has great walks around the area as well. I especially like the idea of camping in the area. Watch Hill does a really good with it. The facilities are clean and very accessible.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful setting friendly people no vehicular traffic and seperate ferry only accessible island make this a great spot for summer holidays
  • This is definitely a must-see when on the south shore. Take a ferry from Sayville (costs about $13) and give yourself about 3 hours to explore the Sunken Forest path and adjoining beach. Be sure to bring plenty of bug spray!
