Fire-Island is located on the southern end of Long Island and is reached by ferry from the towns of Bay Shore, Sayville or Patchogue. The Fire Island National Seashore is accessible by car near its eastern end at Smith Point County Park. The beautiful beaches of Fire Island are made up of soft, white sand and outdoor activities abound on the island. Choose from swimming, surfing, boating, kayaking, wind surfing, hiking, camping and biking. Wildlife is abundant on Fire Island along the seashore where white-tailed deer, red fox and rabbits can be seen, and anglers fish for bass, blowfish, mackerel and winter flounder. The visitors' center is located inside one of the main attractions on the island - the Fire Island Lighthouse, which is a mid-19th century structure. One of the other top attractions on Fire Island is the Sunken Forest, which is a very unique area that is one of the last remaining maritime forests on the eastern seaboard. The 40-acre forest earned its name because it appears lower than the surrounding water, although it is not actually below sea level - the high surrounding sand dunes that protect this environment create the illusion of being lower than sea level. Other Fire Island attractions include Sailors Haven, which offers a marina, beach and picnic areas, and Robert Moses State Park, located on the west end of the island, with a fishing pier, boat anchorages and a putt-putt golf course. There are several communities located on Fire Island, including Ocean Beach, which is the largest.

Fire Island Weather & Climate

Long Island enjoys a four-season, moderate climate, given its relatively northern latitude-which makes it a pleasant place to visit year-round. It is the largest island adjoining the continental United States, extending approximately 118 miles east-northeast from the mouth of the Hudson River, adjacent to Manhattan Island. Winters tend to be unpredictable and summers can be warm and muggy, but offshore breezes help moderate temperatures. Spring and fall are the best times to visit, when temperatures are mild. March tends to be rainy, but temperatures stay above freezing. April's warming temperatures makes it more comfortable and May is generally a gorgeous month on Long Island, weather wise. September to November is pleasant and mild, and the changing leaves make it a beautiful time to visit.
