Lovely beach with soft sand and pounding surf. Walk a mile to the east and enjoy it all to yourself. Take the ferry or if you're lucky, tie up your boat in the marina and go on an instant vacation. Be prepared for mosquitoes at...More
The island is about 1.5hrs by train from Penn station, then another 30mins bus+ferry. Do check the train VS ferry times so you don’t have to wait too long at the pier (the pier has a bar which you can also chill out).
The Sunken Forest located in Sailor’s Haven on Fire Island is a rarity even by global standards. “According to the New York Natural Heritage Program, the Sunken Forest was ranked as ‘globally rare,’ meaning there are few remaining occurrences of this assemblage of plants throughout...More
Arrived just as an on shore wind started whipping up the ocean! Would have loved to have taken a long walk from parking area, next time. Make sure you always bring a jacket. Wind was whipping up as we were on top of lighthouse. Sunscreen...More
Fire Island National Seashore HQ is easy to get to, at the end of Laurel Street. Inside there's no exhibits, but there is a stamping station on the wall, some brochures (including an overall unigrid of Fire Island), and a bathroom (out of order when...More
This is my home... I have seen hurricanes drive waves over the dunes, touched huge sharks in her inlets, argued with Captain Mundus in her bars, played with the munchkins from the Wizard of Oz in her towns, surfed, sails, got burned, played with deer,...More

Hello Michele, if you want to go to the Fire Island Lighthouse you can either drive to Robert Moses State Park go to field #5 you can not miss it. You would have to get there early if you drive, parking lot fills up fast.
If you take the ferry out of Bay Shore to Kismet if you want to see the lighthouse then walk over about 15 minute walk, the beach is right there , you can bring your back packs on Ferry. There are restaurant's in Kismet, and other communities. You could walk down to Ocean Beach and take ferry back from there also and in the other communities.
Ocean beach is the biggest community with a lot of restaurants. No driving on Fire Island. There's a lot to see and enjoy while there.

Boat. On the west end is Democrat Point to the new inlet formed by Sandy. It is quite the walk and you need to pay in the state parking fields at Robert Moses. The walk goes almost to Smiths Point. I don't think you should walk across but not sure. The next walk is from the new inlet to the Center Moriches Inlet. You can't walk across. Then from CM Inlet to Shinicock (sp) Inlet, again you need a boat. After that Dune Rd in the Hamptons with a few small breaks. But mostly what Marie wrote, I like Kismet too. The other towns have charms but be up for everything, I mean everything. I tried to ride my bike but between towns the sand was too soft to ride, it was very hot so I went to the water, swam awhile and went back to field 5. LOL, have fun, stay off the dunes, ticks and poison ivy, some naked people too!
