Ocean Bay Park is a community of 281 homes. Although Ocean Bay Park is perhaps most well-known for Flynn's Fire Island bar, many residents and new families who prefer a more peaceful atmosphere than other communities has led to the decline in summer share beach house rentals as owner-occupancy rises. Ocean Bay Park has a modest commercial stretch along the Bay Walk, which features a Fire Island hotel, three restaurants, bars, and a food market. Ocean Bay Park has one of Fire Island’s only bicycle shops, which offers bicycle rentals for exploring and cruising through its network of sidewalks. Ocean Bay Park’s laid-back, non-restrictive lifestyle is especially appreciated by young (and not so young) homeowners and renters who seek a carefree, fun environment as the ideal Fire Island beach experience. The Fire Island Ferry offers service to Ocean Bay Park from the Bay Shore Fire Island Ferry terminal.
