“An excellent outing”
Review of The Sunken Forest

Ranked #3 of 10 things to do in Fire Island
Attraction details
Reviewed June 30, 2012

It takes a bit of effort but makes for an excellent outing. You get a boat ride, a walk through a primeval holly forest (on a comfortable boardwalk) and then a great Atlantic Ocean beach. You may want to pack a lunch or snacks although food is available. On weekends, you may find a very crowded parking lot (which also charges a fee). Great for romantic strolling as well as families and out-of-town guests.

Interesting, short walk along a boardwalk in a forest located between the ocean dunes and the Great South Bay. There is a nice ocean beach. Accessible only by boat or ferry.

Easy walk through a fascinating natural setting including very friendly Deer. The stunted growth of the vegetation is very interesting. A bit hot during the summer but the beach is right there.

There literally is a "sunken" forest-nothing like it anywhere I have seen-so different-you walk on a wooden path through this really amazing below-sea lever forest-then come out the other end at the most lovely unspoiled and un-crowded beach!
