How to get to the Fire Island Lighthouse:
The Fire Island Lighthouse is located on the western end of the Fire Island National Seashore, between the town of Kismet and Robert Moses State park. Visitors can access the Fire Island Lighthouse via a quick walk from the field 5 parking area. This is probably the most common way people visit the Fire Island Lighthouse and although technically you are on Fire Island, you are able to access this area by car so it may lack some of the true no car Fire Island vibe. Another option is to make a real Fire Island day of it, take the Fire Island Ferry from Bay Shore to the town of Kismet. From Kismet the Fire Island Lighthouse is just a short 10 minute walk down the beach.
What to do on Fire Island:
There is plenty to do on Fire Island; we suggest that you read our Fire Island Things to Do post for more information. The Fire Island Lighthouse is an amazing historical landmark and great way to get a quick and easy taste of life on Fire Island. It’s also an amazing photography subject. I took the following photos with my iPhone, imagine what you can do with a real camera.
