Favorite Escapes

Most of us have a pair of comfortable jeans we love to wear, a favorite restaurant that feels welcoming and relaxing, and a movie we’d gladly watch over and over. Most boaters also have a favorite spot to visit, so we asked readers to share the spot they’d choose over all others. If it’s a new spot for you, wave “hello” to the regulars when you arrive!

My favorite boating destination on Long Island is Sore Thumb, a cove by the inlet. My friends and I love it because you can only get there by boat or 4×4 truck! Nicole 

My favorite boating destination is Montauk. Mike

I love going to Zachs Bay. Ian

We love going from Riverhead to Star Island in Montauk. (But then again, anytime and anywhere on the water and in the sun with my family is like a vacation!). Julie

My favorite boating destination is Fire Island. Todd

My kids, their grandparents, and I love to go to Coast Guard Cove. It is such a nice location. Donna Jean

We tie up and spend time in the Village of Greenport, then cruise on over to Sag Harbor and do it again. Diane

Fire Island Ferry Sailors Haven

Our fave spot is Sailors Haven on Fire Island. Brian

Our favorite location is Lloyd Harbor. Daniel

Our favorite Long Island boating destination is Atlantique, Fire Island, although we have to go off-season or during the week, as we are not town residents. It is so peaceful — a great remedy to a stressful week! Linda
