Fire Island is the perfect getaway for the summer. Any visitor should begin their adventure with Ocean Beach, the unofficial capital of the island. The beautiful ocean view and small-town vibe make this the place-to- be for tourists. A few miles east of Ocean Beach are the LGBT-centric communities of Cherry Grove and the Fire Island Pines. Next up is the Fire Island National Seashore, which features park facilities across the entire island. Among these facilities is the Otis Pike Fire Island High Dune Wilderness, a crown jewel of untouched beach and forest that can be seen for miles. Lastly, Fire Island is home to history rich restaurants that include casual and fine dining.
