America's Top Beaches

10 hot spots worth visiting this summer

Sailors Haven/Sunken Forest, Fire Island National Seashore, New York

Located: Approximately 55 miles east of New York City, across the Great South Bay from Sayville, NY

One of the best-kept secrets on the east coast, Sailors Haven/Sunken Forest is a perfect escape from the fast-paced New York City lifestyle. With clean, lifeguard-protected beaches that are never crowded, Sailors Haven offers what most other New York beaches can't - peace and quiet. In fact, it's not unusual to walk 5 or 10 minutes down the beach and not see another person. Just don't forget to pack a lunch because the beach's small concession stand is the only place you'll find for miles.

Fit Factor: In addition to being a great swimming and surfing spot, you'll also find a one-and-a-half-mile-long boardwalk nature trail that runs through the island's famed Sunken Forest.
