New York Beaches


New York has 127 miles of coastline and the parks maintain 14 miles of beaches. All are open from Memorial Day to Labor Day and have lifeguards on duty.


Fire Island Ocean Beach has no sidewalks and the beach sand is hot so no bare feet here. Fire Island is a popular place to have a beach house and is where artists, actors, musicians and the ultra rich live. The restaurants however are all casual dress. Some choices for accommodations while here are Pines Bluff Overlook or Pines Paradise Bed & Breakfast.


Montauk Beach is said to have more saltwater fishing records that any other port in the world. The first lighthouse in New York State was completed in 1796 and now has exhibits of historical documents and a 110 foot tower to climb up to catch a stunning view of the ocean and coastline. You can pitch your tent up at Hither Hills Campground during spring and summer.
