Barrett Beach / Talisman
The Barrett Beach dock includes a floating dock that provides for unloading and loading. Local boaters can access the popular bay-side Talisman picnic area from this pier.
The Barrett Beach/Talisman area is located near the center of Fire Island National Seashore. It is across the Great South Bay from Bayport and Sayville, Long Island. At this time, it is only accessible by private boat and foot, and by charter ferry service from Patchogue or Sayville. (See Barrett Beach/Talisman Hours.)
The setting sun over Barrett Beach casts long shadows on this quiet stretch of beach.
