Getting to Fire Island

There is a good bridge connection from Long Island to Jones Beach Island and then to the popular Fire Island. However, many people still book a direct ferry from Long Island to Fire Island. This is because a significant portion of the island is not easily accessible by car!!!

Discover here which ferry you should board or if using the bridge is still a possibility.

Bridge to Fire Island

The bridge to Fire Island and a glimpse of the iconic water tower are depicted in the photograph. Additionally, the image highlights portions of the parking areas from which beach access is available.

Is the bridge to Fire Island an option for you?

The western coast of Fire Island can be reached by car.  There are four fairly large parking areas from which you can access the beach.

As you head east, past the lighthouse, you will mainly encounter sandy roads. These are only accessible to permit holders, who are often residents and employees. So, for tourists staying on the island, taking the ferry is almost unavoidable.

There are quite a few ferries to Fire Island. To get a clear view of the departing ferries, we have included the routes on a map.
