I really think Long Island has the BEST beaches!
Where can you find such beautiful white, soft sand and no crowds?
Okay, the weekend does get lots more people, but many days you can have plenty of unoccupied sand all around you.
The Jersey shore does have the same beautiful sand, but the crowds are so huge, you can barely see the sand, even during the week.
Fire Island is the best and the reason I say, "I love where I live!"
