This sleepy hamlet, connected from east to west by a sand stretch of the Burma Road, is totally free of commercial influences. Supplies must be brought either from Fair Harbor or Ocean Beach. What the community lacks in amenities, however, it makes up for with its wonderful sense of isolation and relaxation. The narrowest part of the island, Atlantique is difficult to access since it has kept most of its area free from sidewalks. The deep, hot sand can make for a long hike in and out of this small quiet town. However, this is the way residents and long-term renters appreciate it.
Atlantique also features the largest marina on the western portion of the island. Atlanique is the ideal place for those who wish to vacation aboard their boats. There are 159 dock slips which are capable of accommodating boats up to 55 feet. This amenity provides a safe harbor from which one can base further exploration of Fire Island, while still enjoying the privacy and comfort of your own boat at your leisure. With easy access to the life guarded ocean beach, Atlantique also offers public facilities such as restrooms, showers and a snack bar.
Atlantique is an ideal place for families with children. In addition to the fun atmosphere for the kids, adults can enjoy the fine dining and superlative night life in nearby Ocean Beach as well.
