Barrett Beach / Talisman

View of dunes, beach and ocean from Barrett Beach on Fire Island

The Barrett Beach/Talisman area is a boater's paradise located near the center of Fire Island National Seashore, across the Great South Bay from Bayport and Sayville on Long Island. At this time, this National Park Service site is only accessible by private boat and on foot, or by charter ferry service from Patchogue or Sayville.

Barrett Beach/Talisman offers a dock for boaters to load and unload only, a boardwalk trail leading across the island to the ocean beach, restrooms, and a picnic area.

Visitors to Barrett Beach/Talisman must use the bathroom facilities closest to the ocean beach. Due to limited resources, the Talisman restrooms are currently closed.
