West Beach 99 Beach Club Rd, Port Jefferson, NY11777 Part of the more than a mile of shoreline available to Port Jefferson residents, West Beach can be accessed from Beach…More Club Road. Like most north shore beaches, West Beach is very rocky. The beach stretches along the Long Island Sound from the private beach area at the northwestern end to East Beach. It's great for collecting interesting rocks or just hanging out and enjoying the beautiful shoreline. There's also a barbecue and picnic table available for use. During the summertime, lifeguards are on duty.
East Beach 181 Village Beach Rd, Port Jefferson, NY11777 The narrow strip of beach in Port Jefferson, just around the head of the harbor heading toward the mouth of Mount Sinai…More Harbor, is aptly named, as it is on the easterly shore of the village boundaries. Because of storms that severely eroded the beachhead, the town has closed off much of the shoreline to visitors (with approval from the DEC). Residents can still enjoy the Long Island Sound, but with much less beach area. Groups are welcome to have parties, but a permit may be required. There's a swing set and some trails.
Long Island Seaport and Eco Center 101 E Broadway, Port Jefferson, NY11777 In 1995 some local residents came together to help convince the town of Port Jefferson to save the dilapidated area of…More East Broadway that had historically served as a ship building site. The vision of the residents was to preserve a piece of the harbor front and transform it into a public place for all residents to enjoy. The association that came to be known as the Long Island Seaport and Eco Center (LISEC) has continued to fight for the integrity of the shoreline and waters of Port Jefferson. LISEC supported the creation of the Bayles Boat Shop where volunteers come to do wood boat building projects, adopt-a-beach and shellfish restoration programs and education projects using the Long Island Sound and Port Jefferson Harbor as a laboratory for learning. The headquarters for LISEC is in the Bayles Boat Shop located in Harborfront Park.
