Those who have ever wondered about the various barrier islands that surround New York's Long Island now have their answer. The largest of the group is the fiercely named Fire Island - a picturesque seaside spot that makes a pleasant alternative vacation destination for those traveling in New York state.
Fire Island houses miles and miles of beautiful coastline. Since few people other than the locals venture here, the added beauty of these beaches is that they are not crammed with beach goers and tourists. Visit Robert Moses State Park for five miles worth of perfect sandy beaches away from the crowds. Cupsogue Beach County Park is also pleasant and features a few more restaurants, stores, and amenities. The supervision of lifeguards offered at the latter make it the perfect place to go with kids.
Fire Island is best enjoyed in the summer. The island and its beaches offer a refreshing escape from the New York humidity at this time. From June to September, temperatures often soar over 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
