With its close proximity to both Robert Moses Beach and Jones Beach, a warm summer day will find families throughout Bay Shore flocking to the soft sands sand refreshing cool waters that gently caress the shores of a modern, nautical community situated just minutes from the renowned, sea-scaped beaches of Fire Island.
Fishing, boating and sailing enthusiasts enjoy the Great South Bay as do beachgoers yearning for a day at the shore.
Pleasure fishermen abound on the plentiful docks, as well as on bay and ocean charter crafts. They are searching for their catch of tasty flounder, fluke and bass. Commercial baymen make their living on the sea as they have for generations. Public launching ramps and abundant dock space, both public and private, paint the waterfront landscape.
Residents have access to bay and ocean beaches as well as thousands of acres of neighboring parkland and wildlife conservation preserves.
The crown jewel of the area, the Bay Shore Marina, is one of the largest publicly owned marinas on the East Coast. From here and many adjacent points, residents have access to endless nautical enjoyment throughout the year. Renowned boat shows and fishing tournaments are hosted here.
