Fire Island is a barrier island on Long Island’s South Shore consisting of roughly 22.5 square miles. Portions of the island are within the jurisdiction of the Suffolk County towns of Babylon, Brookhaven, and Islip. The Island has become a major tourist destination as well as a favorite spot for locals, with thousands of people flocking to see its iconic lighthouse and swim in its ocean waters every summer. Robert Moses State Park has become a popular spot for residents, with several fields offering sandy beaches and large ocean waves perfect for body surfing, boogie boarding, and even surfing; the park is also one of the first State Parks on Long Island. Though Fire Island is not densely populated throughout most of the year, a number of restaurants have sprung up to provide visitors some fine dining opportunities, and with all that water there are plenty of opportunities for boating and fishing.
