Enjoying Atlantique beach on Fire Island

If you are looking for a family-friendly place to enjoy a beautiful summer's day, then Atlantique is the place to go!

Atlantique is a small beach community located on Fire Island, between Ocean Bay Park and Fair Harbor. It offers swimming in the Atlantic Ocean and the Great South Bay, with lifeguards on duty in both locations.

What makes this beach different from others on Fire Island is that it is only accessible by private boat or ferry that departs from Bay Shore every day. After going for a swim, you have the option of stopping for a bite to eat at the Shack, everyone's favorite hangout destination.

Not a fan of swimming? Atlantique also offers handball and basketball courts and a playground for the younger kids. Of all the great things to do at Atlantique, nothing can compare to watching the beautiful sunset across the Great South Bay, which is surely enough to take anyone's breath away.
