Sailor's Haven

Located along Fire Island's National Seashore, Sailor's Haven is a definite fav.  Unless you want to walk across the Great South Bay, or unless you have access to a private boat, the best way to get there is by taking the Fire Island Ferry from Sayville, Long Island.  

Do yourself a favor and hop on the earliest ferry so you can have the beach all to yourselves for a couple of hours.  We don't want to hear any complaining from any of you sleepy heads out there.  Trust us, you will thank us for this tip!

After you've spent some quality time on the Sailor's Haven Beach, head over to the Sunken Forest. Take the one and a half mile long boardwalk trail through the forest. Then head over to the snack bar to refuel.  If you're really feeling adventurous, head back to the beach and walk to Cherry Grove for a bite.  There are lots of places to eat there, and Cherry Grove is a fun place.

See you at the beach!

Wow! I love your blog. And what better way to tell you then to post a comment on your blog -- ahem!!!

What a great topic. There's so much about Long Island people don't know -- in particular its great beauty, which is clearly a topic you will be covering.

Can't wait to read more!
