A Fire Island vacation really offers the best of both (or should I say all) worlds. Just a short ferry ride over the beautiful Great South Bay, where else can you bask in the sun and splash in the waves of the Atlantic by day, savor some of the freshest seafood for dinner and then party until dawn? And did I mention – you can walk or bike to everything? Actually, you don’t have any other option, since there are no cars on Fire Island. However, if you are partying – you certainly should not be driving any way!
The Fire Island Pines can be a quiet and relaxing retreat during the day and a premier and exciting place to party all night long. Whether you rent a house for a weekend, a week or the entire summer, Fire Island is the definition of summer fun at its best.
Relax on the white sand and get some sun during the day. Bring a good book and plant your beach chair in the sand – what’s more relaxing than that? If it gets too hot, there’s always the cobalt blue Atlantic Ocean, to dive in to! Take a 10 minute stroll on the ocean to nearby Cherry Grove. Stop into some of the local stores or perhaps indulge in relaxing treatment at the Pines Spa. There are many options to relax, enjoy the scenery and just “chill”.
On a lazy Sunday morning, you can stroll over to the Yacht Club at the Blue Whale and enjoy the unforgettable Drag or Blues Brunch! I hear the music and the Bloody Marys are both spicy and so enjoyable! What’s better than a cold cocktail, some fluffy eggs and some great jazz and blues by the bay? Or maybe you might want to spend the afternoon on the pool deck at the Aqua Lounge? After a morning at the beach, this is the place to spend your Saturday or Sunday afternoon for sure! Live music, slushy drinks, dancing and lots of great people are what you will find here. This is where you can get your party started early for sure!
If you spent the day by the beach, head back to your house for a refreshing outdoor shower and perhaps a late afternoon nap. To start your evening you can enjoy the sunset on the Sea Plane Dock and a great meal at one of the terrific local restaurants. Try the Blue Whale for more casual dining or for a more sophisticated experience, stop into the Bistro Restaurant and Martini Bar.
After dinner, there are many options to continue the fun. Hit the Sip N Twirl for an experience like no other, or see what’s going on at the PAVILION; from DJs to live music of all types, you will find something exciting happening there. If a low key night is more your speed, stop into the Piano Bar at the Blue Whale.
