A very beautiful area. Accessible by boat only. This is access to the barrier islands off the East coast of Long Island, New York. We entered the park near Babylon, NY. At the park entrance there is free parking, a restaurant, free toilets, boat slips, bait shop and pier. Available are designated tour vessels, similar to a small passenger ferry which requires a reservation and where beach destinations can be accessed. There are several designated beaches along the barrier island stretching as far East as the Moriches. We visited the section known as Fire Island. There are summer cottage style houses for rent with access to the Atlantic Ocean beaches. The Fire Island Hotel is a quaint and bustling hotel. Flynn's Restaurant & Bar serves delicious seafood and burgers. Definitely something to check out on-line for visitor information. Be sure to look at Google Maps to see the details of the beach locations. Farther out by the William Floyd Parkway is a limited area entry for vehicles but does not give access beyond that park/beach area.
An awesome place for boating, walking, hangout and relax with friends and family, especially in Summer time. Ocean waves have great calming factor. If you have ambition to catch some fish or crabs. There are plenty for everyone. There is an on site restaurant serves fresh catches daily. There is a small shop provides most of the supplies you may need for fishing or crabbing. Fishing boats leaves a few times a day to take passengers to the open water. Free entry for cars if you go early in the morning or late in the evening.
