Luxurious Beach Hotel on Great South Bay

Ferries hailing from New York City and Long Island regularly cruise along the Great South Bay toward Ocean Beach, New York, to drop off tourists at Fire Island. You can watch the ferries from The Palms Hotel's private beach on the bay, which is lined with deck chairs.

Though it’s billed as a hotel, the front of the Palms has the look of a large beach house with cottages scattered around it. The private bay beach is located right behind the property, and you can feel free to rent a large sun umbrella from the hotel and sit in the shade, or kick back on one of many beach beds.

Each of The Palms Hotel’s king rooms has a cool and dreamy feel to it; there are gauzy curtains draping the windows, and white duvets cover the pillow-top beds. A private bathroom is decked out in Italian ceramic. After settling in, hotel guests can also borrow one of The Palms’ hand wagons and walk from the hotel to one of the nearby grocery stores.

Ocean Beach, New York: Car-Free City with Clean Beaches and Wild Nightlife

Ocean Beach is situated right in the middle of Fire Island, a long, thin stretch of land in the Outer Barrier Islands off the southern shores of Long Island. Clean beaches and quaint, cottage-lined streets characterize Ocean Beach, which has been a popular East Coast vacation spot for nearly a century. Cars are banned all over Fire Island, lending an old-fashioned air to its villages. The island also has long been a haven for LGBTQ vacationers.

It’s worth it to visit Fire Island Lighthouse for both a great view and a nice history lesson. Climb the 162 feet and 192 winding steps up to the top to get a panoramic view of the island, and then head back down to check out the museum housed in the old keeper’s quarters.

When not lounging at the beach, many tourists make a daytrip to the whimsical Sunken Forest, a wooded environment nestled into a large sand dune; from the outside, it looks like a forest that is sunken below sea level.
