Located only 2.2 miles across the bay from the Village Marina, "Ho-Hum"
Beach affords a welcome destination to Villagers whether they arrive via the Whalehouse
Point or cruise over on a boat of their own. If the latter applies,
there are boat slips available, at a nominal fee, for the use of Village residents.
As its name suggests, "Ho-Hum" Beach is a quaint, little beach surrounded by the Fire Island National Sea Shore, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Great South Bay. It is unburdened by pretense; where swimmers and sunbathers alike are assured the true pleasure of recreating and relaxing at the shore.
In addition to providing a comfy place to wait for the ferry, the screened-in gazebo at the beach is furnished with tables and benches for picnicking. You'll also find a concession stand, recently renovated restrooms, a changing room and cold-water showers which are all conveniently located nearby.
A pleasant stroll across the dunes realizes your true reward, you've arrived at "Ho-Hum" Beach. Here, our village beach staff (which includes our lifeguards) is on duty for your enjoyment and safety.
