Summer Share


Ocean Bay Park is populated by many summer beach house shares. It attracts a young crowd, one who is not afraid to have a good time.

Within steps of the ferry dock is a modest commercial block featuring several restaurants and food stores including the Schooner Inn, Beach Street Pizza & Grille, The Park Pizza and Inn Between. A little further down the road is Flynn's, a serious party place.

The Schooner Inn also houses one of Fire Island's few bike shops. Bike, kayak and boat rentals are available. Just don't combine that with the daily 5-7 p.m. happy hour. Flynn's has the same happy hour and reggae bands on its deck every Sunday at 5-p.m.

The Sea Shore Condo Motel (631-583-5860) caters mainly toward couples and has four rooms for rent on a weekly or weekend basis for $595. It's located on Bay Walk at the midpoint of Flynn's and the ferry dock. Ferry service leaves from Bay Shore.
