Ok, if you read my reviews you will see I'm usually positive. I will be again as these are MY beaches. First, there are so many 'named' beaches on Fire Island to say Patchogue is not quite right. For day trippers may I recommend taking the Robert Moses Causeway, a beautiful ride in its self, to Robert Moses State Park.... More

Don't miss a trip to the Fire Island National Seashore. Awesome hiking from Smiths Point in the fall months. Great ferry rides from Patchogue and Sayville to various seashore communities all WITHOUT cars and traffic! Check out fireisland.com to see which communities and areas you may want to visit. Remember to inspect yourself and your children very carefully for deer... More

This expansive beach is one of the most beautiful beaches you can go to in the contiguous United States. Every time you go there it is a different experience with different shells, wildlife, sand patterns, etc. This is an Atlantic beach so the waters can get very busy in their wave action. If you go there swim only in lifeguarded... More

I grew up and have worked here at various points in my life. Where else on Earth can you find an empty, unadulturated beach an hour from the City? Fall is the best time to visit FINS. I've travelled a lot and this is still one of my favorite places to go. The Beach is in my soul. Tip: Take... More

Had a lovely time on Fire Island Beach resort with the family.Though crowded in the center of the beach was quite deserted towards the end. The weather that day was overcast though.Quite a peaceful place to relax.

Just LOVE Fire Island, Barrier Island to Long Island. Been going all my life every summer and I am always so grateful this serene beautiful sandy beaches are just a short boat ride away. Many towns, some very quiet, some lively with shopping, restaurants and bars. It's not paradise, but damn close.

My family and I recently visited on a beautiful summer day. We arrived mid morning and the beach was already starting to fill up. I thought the parking charge was steep at $15 but the beach itself is very pretty. There are also lifeguards on duty so I guess I should not complain about the cost. There is a beach... More

It's a nice place to go to get away for the day with friends. You can either take the LIRR or drive to the island.

Took the LIRR to Sayville where we transferred to shuttle bus for short ride to the ferry. Pleasant ferry ride to Sailor's Haven/Sunken Forrest. Beautiful, life guarded, beach. Facilities w/ outside showers to clean up and refresh before ferry ride back. Lovely hike through Sunken Forest - although would bring insect repellent next time. There is a snack bar but... More
