Water Island

Water Island–despite its name, very much a part of Fire Island–has undergone perhaps the most interesting metamorphosis of any community on the beach. Today it is known as a very quiet, very private community of some 50 houses situated on the narrowest part of Fire Island with a breathtakingly broad and open stretch of beach, rolling boardwalks, and lush foliage.

Water Island is about 1 ½ miles west of Davis Park, and is one of the more private and peaceful communities on Fire Island.  Other than the public phone situated on the dock Water Island has no other public facilities.
