Description
Great Gun Beach is a popular beach located west of Moriches Inlet just on the north side of Fire Island in the Town of Brookhaven. Accessible only by private boat, Great Gun Beach is considered a calm oasis on the otherwise bustling Fire Island. Open to locals and non-residents alike, Great Gun Beach is an idyllic place to dock your boat and enjoy all the area has to offer during the warm summer months. 

While there is no electricity or running water at the beach, the restrooms and showers make this an excellent option for families and individuals alike. There is dock space available for a rental fee of $4 per foot per day, and hourly resident rates are $10 per hour. Residents can purchase a season pass for $325. 

In addition to the dock space, Great Gun Beach boasts a picnic area, small playground, and ample space for enjoying the sunset or a romp in the waves. A favorite spot for fishers (although not in the designated swim area), enjoy a day of peace and quiet at Great Gun Beach this summer. 

While dogs are not allowed, there are plenty of ways to keep yourself busy while you soak up the stunning sunsets and warm ocean breeze. If you do plan to get in the water, swimmers must stay within the green flags. No snorkels, blow up toys, or rafts are allowed in the designated swim area. 

Please keep in mind that only trained service animals (no ESA animals) are permitted, and there is no fishing in the swim area or grills or open flames allowed. Offering a small marina and long, sandy beach, Great Gun Beach is a relatively undiscovered gem on Fire Island that is calling your name this summer! Remember, Great Gun Beach can only be accessed by boat, so get yours ready and plan for a great day away from the crowds in picturesque Brookhaven.
