Trip Planner: USA / New York State / Long Island / Port Washington / Historic Sites / Sands Point Preserve
The 216-acre former Guggenheim Estate, now called the Sands Point Preserve, is an exhibition of past and future natural beauty, human creativity and achievement. On this site, steep cliffs overlook a mile of sandy beach directly on Long Island Sound. A sparkling pong teeming with wildlife runs from uplands almost to the coast, resulting in a melding of saltwater and freshwater species. Silent trails meander through deep woods. Walk century-old stone bridges and gaze in wonder at peerless castles and Gatsby-era country homes that are the embodiment of a golden era.Put Sands Point Preserve into our Port Washington vacation route planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Port Washington.

Delapidated buildings under repair. Parking lots, closed off areas, private groups only signs. Cars allowed in, bikes not? The best part are the walking trails, the old money bag homes should be torn down and it should be made a free national park for everyone to enjoy. Not worth the $10 entry fee.
skip the tour... they just talk about the history for an hour. it's not that fun. good place for picnic when the weather's nice.
It's beautiful and spacious. There's a trail that leads to the coastal, rocky beach. Be warned though, there are some bees in the picnic areas.
Lovely scenic haven nestled in Port Washington. There's enough woodlands and greenery to walk in, beautiful beach scenery and cozy spots to have a picnic. Sands Point is dog friendly and there is ample parking.
Beautiful place, and a nice walk
