The South shore of Long island has the best beaches. The Fire Island National Seashore has white sandy beaches and ocean waves. Some beaches are private and some are public with small towns and restaurants. It’s a short ferry or boat ride away.

Amazing coastline. The lighthouse at the West end is amazing and a site in itself. But the seashore is worth anytime that you can.

There is no nicer place then to sit down by the waterfront and watch the boats, birds and people sail, fly or walk by. Picture taking paradise as well as taking a cab(Uber) into town to enjoy food, friends and sunshine. See you there
