Kismet / Fire Island Lighthouse
Intensely informal, carefree and easygoing, Kismet is a great community with something for everyone — restaurants, tennis courts, a playground area, and of course beaches! Round out your day with a tour of the Fire Island Lighthouse, and go ahead and climb to the top, where you’ll be rewarded with gorgeous, panoramic views.
This eclectic community has an excellent nightlife scene while keeping its popular reputation of also being a great family destination. Home to over a dozen restaurants and endless attractions such as street fairs, live music, and plenty of shops and boutiques, Ocean Beach is truly the cosmopolitan center of the island.
Ocean Bay Park
Ocean Bay Park is known for its laid-back, family-friendly vibe and, of course, its amazing beach. The best way to explore this low-key little town is by renting bikes and riding through its picturesque streets to find the local ice cream shop, pizza parlor and bay-front restaurant.
