This thin, 31 mile long island runs parallel to the south shore of Long Island, is a maximum of 1300 feet wide and is barely 3 feet above sea level at its highest elevation. With wide, sandy beaches, natural forests, wetlands and very lively downtown areas. Some areas of Fire Island, such as Fire Island Pines increases in population greatly in summer.
Most of Fire Island is only accessible via either Sayville Ferry and Fire Island ferry, or other watercraft or aircraft. The only public road is to Robert Moses State Park on the western tip, which is the only area of the island accessible by car. The rest of the island, including all its communities, have wonderful walking paths.
