Racing the Emerald Curtain
From Fire Island Inlet to Jones Beach, 10 miles (16km) of unstabilized beach can produce some decent sandbars on the right day. High tide is no good because it amplifies the trough of deeper water between the outside and inside banks. The Gilgo area is generally the most consistent.
Large car parks make access easier at points, but walking is the way to escape the consistent crowds. Long distances between facilities.
