"Something for everybody!"

Whether you're looking to spend a quiet family holiday on the beach or dance the night away at one of Fire Island's famous GBLT nightclubs, Fire Island - located off the southern coast of Long Island - has something for you. Each of the island's seventeen communities (each quite isolated from the others, due to the lack of transit infrastructure and paved roads on the island) has its own distinctive flair, from the gay-oriented tourism of the Pines and Cherry Grove to the anti-tourist vibe given off by Point O'Woods (which only offers leases to families with children, and doesn't allow visitors) and Davis Park to the family-friendly areas of Ocean Beach Village, the island's main tourist site, and Kismet. Try some of the fantastic seafront seafood restaurants, or get daring at one of the island's many nude beaches. While some parts of Fire Island are notoriously unfriendly to tourists, they can be great hideaway communities for those looking for traditional village life and the "away from it all" attititude it entails
  • Big gay scene
  • Lovely seaside
