Indulge in a Coastal Kaleidoscope

Fire Island National Seashore is a relatively natural seashore comprised of relatively unspoiled and undeveloped beaches, dunes, other natural features, and a diverse barrier island ecosystem.

Immerse yourself in an enchanting collage of coastal life and history. Rhythmic waves, high dunes, ancient maritime forests, historic landmarks and glimpses of wildlife, Fire Island has been a special place for diverse plants, animals and people for centuries. Far from the pressure of nearby big-city life, dynamic barrier island beaches offer both solitude and camaraderie and spiritual renewal. - AsNotedIn
