Things to do

Fire Island—a place unlike any other

Each of the main island communities has its own character, from bohemian Cherry Grove to the more laid-back Kismet, and with it comes a whole host of Fire Island vacation rentals. Of course, most visitors come to Fire Island for its unspoiled beaches and intense sun, where it’s easy to lose track of time. And if you tire of the beach, why not take the kids to one of the five national parks, where nature lovers can explore the untamed dunes of Otis Pike High Wilderness or the 19th-century Fire Island Lighthouse?


You’re never far from nature on Fire Island

Fire Island has numerous great seasonal resort communities, with the biggest being Ocean Beach, and delights visitors with its wide range of restaurants, stores, bars, and attractive architecture. However, Fire Island is really about the beach and the sea, where solitary beachcombers and families alike can top up their tan. Head out to sea on a surfboard or boat, or spend the afternoon frolicking in the sea. The Fire Island National Seashore covers most of the island, offering a wealth of activities for those with a sense of adventure, especially bird and wildlife watching, canoeing, and fishing.


Long, hot summers and cool winters in Fire Island

Fire Island is a superb summer getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday city life. With around 206 sunny days a year, where temperatures can reach highs of 80°F, there’s really no excuse to leave the beach unless it’s to go for a refreshing evening drink in Ocean Beach village. At the end of the summer, when the days become much cooler and temperatures drop to around 50°F, Fire Island is markedly quieter; a perfect time of year for a more peaceful and secluded vacation, just don’t forget your sweater!
