Fire Island, just one hour east of New York City, has been a special place for diverse plants, animals, and people for centuries.
Far from the sounds and pressures of nearby big-city life, Fire Island National Seashore's dynamic barrier island beaches offer solitude and camaraderie, and spiritual renewal to civilization-weary people.
Fire Island offers visitors many types of relaxation and educational opportunities. Pristine ocean shores, an ancient maritime forest, legacies of lighthouse keepers, and the historic estate of William Floyd are just a few of the recreational, natural, and cultural resources of Fire Island National Seashore.
