On the Island, you can choose to either stay in a hotel room with amenities, or kick back and camp out at the Fire Island National Seashore camping facilities. Just make sure to make reservations early, as slots are limited.

The resorts are extremely busy in the summer months, so it is important to make reservations well before summer sets in. Places with ocean views are clearly most popular.

Swimmers can pick between Atlantic Bay and the Great South Bay. On the Island, you can relax under the sun, and then get refreshed by plunging into Atlantic Bay. A word of warning, though, swim within areas where lifeguards are designated.

There are other water activities you can enjoy while on the Island. You can ride in colorful sea kayaks, windsurf or water ski. Surfing is popular on Fire Island, due to its topography, which produces waves that are huge enough for surfing.

Also dont forget about boating, as the activity is considered a way of life on Fire Island. Thats because 13 communities on Fire Island have marinas and allow you to charter boats.
Fire Island, however, is not just for adults. The place also boasts of amenities and activities that children can enjoy. You can roam around town with them on bikes, or get a wagon for them to pull.
