Since the sixties, Fair Harbor, with its snug tree-lined walks and quaint beach houses, has been a favorite retreat for families seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Fair Harbor is a fun-loving, family-oriented environment. This community includes shops and an entertaining nightlife scene making life easy and fun for the families that flock there.
Some of the conveniences and activities that Fair Harbor residents enjoy include a grocery, liquor and a general store located near the ferry dock, pizza parlor, an ice cream store, and “The Dock,” a restaurant offering some of the best food on Fire Island. A bay beach with lifeguards next to the children’s playground, a summer full of fun and sun including the nightly “Sixish,” a traditional outdoor cocktail hour on the public dock that dates back to the 1970s.
