Lighthouses of Long Island


Long Beach Bar Lighthouse

Directions:  Located at the entrance of Orient Harbor. It is an active navigation aid and also functions as a bed & breakfast. It is possible to get close to it from land but it is a strenuous 2 mile walk on sand, sea shells and rocks. Before you come to the Cross Sound Ferry in Orient there is the Orient Beach State Park. Drive in to the parking area and walk west 2 miles to the end of the beach. The beach may be closed off for nesting plovers. Otherwise it is viewable by boat or with a good set of binoculars from NY 25 just east of Greenport (there is a parking area with a granite monument).
