Fire island is approximately 31 miles (50 km) long and varies between 520 and 1,310 feet. Interesting fact parts of the island do not have roadways. This is the perfect off-the-grid seclusion, stunning beaches and trendy bars.
The beaches are composed mainly of white quartz sand.
Ferries access Fire Island from three Long Island towns: Bay Shore, Patchogue, and Sayville. Also the Davis Park Ferry out of Patchogue goes to the Bay Shore to the westernmost Fire Island.
The first lighthouse built on Fire Island was completed in 1826. For many European immigrants, the Fire Island Light was their first sight of land upon arrival in America. The lighthouse has undergone reconstruction and upgrades over the years. The Lighthouse is open to climb weekends 10 am to 4 pm.
This is the perfect way to spend the day walking around the island and taking photos.
