Beaches

Long Island has numerous incredibly beautiful beaches which are perfect in the hotter summer months and if you live in one of the neighborhoods nearby, are incredibly exclusive to the locals. There is powder fine sand and pounding surf in Montauk where you can do some surfing, as well as the celebrity hangouts all over the Hamptons.

East End Wine Country

The eastern end of the island features a number of different vineyards, due to the climate that is similar to regions of wine country in France. Most can be found in the North Fork area, but South Fork has a few that are notable as well and create a great day of wine tasting and enjoying the Long Island culture and weather. Just make sure you have someone else doing the driving.

Bethpage State Park

This state park is situated in some of Long Island’s prettiest rolling landscapes and sports one of the more famous golf courses in the country. The Bethpage State Park Golf course is known for hosting celebrity golf events and professional golf events, as it has the incredibly challenging Black Course. There are easier courses for all the rest of us non-professionals out there as well.

Shelter Island

A smaller island just a short ferry ride away off the tip of Long Island, this makes the perfect day trip for the more adventurous types. Once there you can explore 2,000 acres of unspoiled greenery owned by the Nature Conservancy in the Mashomack Nature Preserve. Bikes and boats are easy to rent and it’s a great place to spend a long weekend, to help you get away from everything on the main island… or main land.
