Get on board and get away from it all! We are taking the Sayville Ferry to Fire Island's Sailors Haven on this Road Trip: Close to Home.
As you make your way across the Great South Bay an adventure awaits at what's known as the crown jewel of the Fire Island National Seashore.
Sailors Haven is home to a free family beach.
Visit the globally rare, centuries-old Sunken Forest. The majestic forest is one of the last remaining maritime forests on the eastern seaboard. Its name is derived from the fact it is sunken behind the sand dunes that protect it from the Atlantic winds.
If you need a refreshment stop by the Sunken Sailor and Sassyfrass Cafe for some food and ice cream.
