Dock Beach

Dock Beach, owned and run by IPP, is a crescent-shaped beach located along the western shore of Fishers Island at the mouth of West Harbor. It is Fishers Island's smallest beach, but its beauty and charm is matchless. The sky blue waters and soft, white sands are perfect for young children, and the water is clear enough for snorkeling.  Because of its calmer waters protected by the inlet of West Harbor, the beach is interesting and informative for children as they come across hermit crabs, spider crabs, red jellies and moon jellies.  There is a roped off swim area and  lifeguards will be on duty weekdays throughout July and August  11:00am to 4:00pm. Bring a picnic and while the kids swim you can enjoy the views of moored sailboats and in the distance the majestic Long Island Sound.

Do’s:  

  • Enjoy the beautiful setting and swim within the nets

  • Listen to the lifeguard on duty

  • Respect the wildlife including horseshoe crabs & hermit crabs

 

Don’ts: 

  • Please don’t climb on the rocks or lifeguard chair

  • Please don’t bother the lifeguard equipment

  • Please don’t dive off of the swim platform

  • Please leave your pets at home during swim hours


And, please take home everything you brought.

The Cardboard Boat Regatta will be on Monday, July 15th at 5pm at Dock Beach. All are welcome! Here's a PDF of the rules of how to build your boat. They're pretty much the same as last year, but it's good to review before you get started.
