Car: Not Necessary

Ocean Bay Park is one of several small villages on Fire Island and is accessible via the ferries from Bay Shore. A 30-minute ferry ride and you're on an island with no cars; just bikes, flip flops and an occasional golf cart.

While other towns can be very restrictive, Ocean Bay Park's beach allows visitors to play music, games and have a great time.

A walk or a water taxi can bring you to Ocean Beach for dinner and bar hopping, or the Sunken Forest. The Fire Island Lighthouse is also a good day's beach walk then spend the evening in Kismet for dinner.

Ocean Bay Park currently has a market, a deli, pizza shop, two ice cream shops, three restaurant/bars (Schooners, Flynns and Hurricanes). Tennis courts down the street as well as basketball and a playground in Seaview.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I love Fire Island and am sure you will too! I started visiting the island with friends over 10 years ago and have owned "The House of Bamboo" since 2008. I am available to answer any questions you might have and look forward to ensuring you enjoy your stay in Ocean Bay Park.

Why the Owner Chose Ocean Bay Park, Fire Island, NY, USA:
It doesn't get much bigger (or better!) than this! The house is just about equidistant between the beach and the ferry. The house offers the best of both worlds - tons of space (there is even a hammock room!) so you are not stepping on top of each other, and yet plenty of common space for a group dinner, game night, or relaxing on the deck. So, you can see your friends and family as much or as little as you want! :) Grab a beach chair (we've got plenty), grab a towel (tons of those too!) and head on down the path for a day of fun on the beach. Fire Island is a very unique beach destination. The car-free atmosphere encourages a slower pace and casual atmosphere. Fire Island has no restaurant that has a dress code and beach-goers are casual. Being so close to New York City, it is amazing how many stars you can see at night. You feel a million miles away the minute you step onto the ferry for your quick journey across the bay.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Everything in Fire Island is a short walk to the beach. It is very relaxing to be able to leave all of your beach gear at the beach and wander back to the house for lunch - - or to stop by a bar for a frozen beverage - - then stroll back to the beach for more sun. Walking to other towns to explore is fun, and if you are tired from your journey, there is also a water taxi that runs laterally on the island from town to town.
