Part of the pleasure of Fire Island is that it’s so close yet so far removed from the city.
You’re just an hour car or train ride to the Fire Island Ferry terminal in Bay Shore, where ferries to all communities run regularly. This 20 minute boat ride across the Great South Bay is sworn to ease the tensions of the day and render you primed for the Fire Island experience.
Get ready to stay barefoot with a drink and beach towel in hand. We are car free and carefree! A bike, a wagon and an outdoor shower is as high tech as you need to be.
This narrow island is easy to navigate, with just 2 blocks separating the beach from the bay. The independence children can experience here is one of the most cherished attributes of Fire Island. This is safe small town living just 50 miles from NYC.
