Nestled in between the Great South Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, Fire Island is the ultimate vacation getaway, offering pristine beaches without a hint of pretention and has been a haven for generations of beach-goers, outdoor enthusiasts, and water sport lovers. Free of cars and chaos, Fire Island uniquely seems like a world away from its neighboring New York metropolitan way of life. For this Meetup, we will visit the Sailors Haven / Sunken Forest part of Fire Island. Considered the crown jewel of the Fire Island National Seashore, Sailors Haven offers a truly unique combination of breathtaking ocean beach and a 1.5 mile nature trail through the Sunken Forest, one of the few remaining maritime forests on the eastern seaboard and spans over 40 acres of wildlife. Serious hikers, bird watchers, and ecologists find this part of Fire Island to be absolutely fascinating. The forest features holly, bayberry, blueberry, sassafras, and shadblow trees that are estimated to be well over 200 years old and have been twisted and shaped by the constant salt spray. This beautiful forest is home to a vast eco-system of plants and wildlife. Guided tours of the forest are provided by the Fire Island National Park Service. A visitors’ center with nature exhibits, picnic areas, a snack bar and a gift shop are located on the bay front near the marina and ferry dock. Restrooms and showers are located near the life-guarded ocean beach.
