What's not to love?
Fire Island is a fantastic getaway on the beautiful south shore of Long Island
It's easy to get to via ferry, jet ski or car from Robert Moses and walk.
Beautiful beaches, cute town
Good shops and food

Fire island is a terrific place to get away and a visit to the national seashore and the lighthouse is a must. You can hike around the island and head to the top of the lighthouse. Great views and a beautiful landscape. This is worth a visit just to
Climb the lighthouse built in 1858.

This is a great venue for gay people and friends. Probably good to point that out at the start to avoid feeling out of place! The route to get there with the LIRR train/shuttle/ferry package is fantastic and works so seamlessly ($36 each, return included). I was really impressed.

The crowd is friendly and relaxed and I was really impressed by how responsible with keeping the beach clean and tidy everybody was. I couldn't find any litter (trash) anywhere! The hotel with pool scene is great with a fantastic DJ mixing the most unlikely vocals to dance/hiphop - really enjoyed this (usually a hiphop fan).

The bathrooms are nice but heavily used so by later in the day not the best. By far the setup is better than the crazy locations like Brighton Beach or Coney Island.

General food options are slightly limited since the place is so small but the food is very nice. The grocery store is quite extensive and you can get pretty much anything you would need for a short vacation or daytrip for sure.

Definitely go back here, so far this is the best NY beach I've been to and the overall vibe is so friendly and welcoming.

What else can I say.. Took the ferry over to FIRE ISLAND NATIONAL SEASHORE to Sailors Haven and walked the beach. Walked for 4 miles and ran into only two people. We saw more dolphins than people. Amazing place. The sunken forrest was awesome. Little buggy but you just need to put on some deet!

It was a quick drive to this island, not really much to see, it had a walking trail with nothing to really see but bushes.
