A Day at Fire Island and Sunset Dinner
Let’s get together and spend a wonderful summer day or Fire Island.
We are planning on meeting at the Bay Shore/Fire Island ferry terminal at 99 Maple Ave., Bay Shore, NY 11706.
Taking the LIRR to the Bay Shore station s another good option.
The stop is about a 20 minute walk to the ferry.
We are planning to take 11.30 AM Ocean Beach ferry.
DON'T BE LATE!!! The next ferry won’t leave until 1 PM.
After arriving on Fire Island we will take a short 10 minute walk to the beach.
If you would like to spend the day on the beach, please bring whatever you need. A second group will walk on the beach to the next town Ocean Bay Park, take a break there and then walk back to Ocean Beach to meet with the beach group at the Maguire's Bayfront in Ocean Beach for a sunset dinner at 6 PM. The total walking time should not be more than 2 hours.
After dinner we will take the 8.30 PM ferry back to Bay Shore.
Where is Ocean Beach - Fire Island?
Ocean Beach is one of many small communities on Fire Island. Fire Island is a barrier island off the southern shore of Long Island and is part of Suffolk County. Like many of the other small communities on Fire Island, the Ocean Beach community is only accessible via ferry service. While it is a year-round community, the vast majority of inhabitants are on the island for summers only. The map below will give you an overall view of Fire Island’s location in relation to NYC. It is a 31 mile long island in the Atlantic Ocean offering miles of pristine beaches.

Please feel free to cruise the websites and bring your ideas. We are open to all suggestions (Except swimming with the sharks).
What will we be doing at the beach?
Some people will want to stay at the beach, throw down a towel, go for a dip in the ocean and then soak in the sun. Others will want to go for a leisurely walk along the beach eastward to the next village (about 1.3 miles according to google maps). This will give everyone ample opportunity to chat and make new friends, whether sunning on the beach or walking along the surf.
