Seaview Bay Beach in the lovely Seaview community on Fire Island is a lovely way to spend the afternoon with your favorite canine buddy. A barrier island near New York City that’s both pupular with tourists and lucky locals, Fire Island is home to 17 separate communities, all only accessible via ferry.
Seaview is a tight-knit, seasonal community of families who return year after year. Situated between Ocean Beach and Ocean Bay Park, the families of this small town take to the beaches when the weather is nice. The Seaview Bay Beach and Playground is located on the bay side of the island, and is open from late June to mid-September, from 10 am–5 pm daily. Various offerings beyond the beachfront, playground, and pool include lifeguard services, swimming lessons, water fitness classes and various events throughout the season for children, such as scavenger hunts, bay races, pizza parties, and more. WiFi is also available.
If you plan to bring your dog to Seaview Bay Beach, they are more than welcome! They do need to stay on leash at all times, even in the water. Be sure to bring any essentials, such as water to share, snacks, and clean-up bags, and always stoop and scoop.
Note that you’ll have to take the ferry to get to Seaview, or any of the communities on Fire Island, so you’ll want to be sure that’s something your pooch is comfortable with. Once on the island, watch out for the friendly neighborhood deer, who are totally harmless and gentle, but may alarm your dog. The deer do bring in ticks, so be sure your dog has tick protection.
Whether for the day, or the summer, you and your pup are sure to fall in love with the Seaview Bay Beach!
