Destination guide

The blazing beaches of Fire Island

The mighty Fire Island is a 50-mile long barrier island just off the south coast of Long Island, New York. Delighting visitors with a rich cultural history, and tales of colonial pirates and shipwrecks from the prohibition era, Fire Island vacation rentals are the perfect summer destination to enjoy all the best that this Atlantic destination has to offer. It’s cultural arts scene buzzes with musicians, actors, and artists from across North America all year round, so you’ll be spoilt for choice for family-friendly activities.

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?

Activities

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.

Weather

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!

Natural features

The perfect vacation spot in Fire Island

Fire Island is the largest of the 4 barrier islands off the south shore of Long Island, and since it’s only a ¼ mile long in certain places, Fire Island vacation rentals are never far from the sea. Large parts of the island are national parks with preserved natural dune landscapes and wetlands, not to mention beautiful family-friendly beaches. If you love the great outdoors, be sure to explore the unique, natural resources of the Otis Pike High Dune Wilderness, or even the Sunken Forest—a 300-year-old maritime holly forest.
