FUN IN BAY SHORE & BEYOND

Hi-

This is Marie, the owner of Nalu.  I love to explore different towns and different countries and I always find it helpful to get the insider scoops from people who live and work in the area, so here's some of my recommendations in Bay Shore and beyond...

BAY SHORE HANGOUTS

BEACH LIFESTYLE STORE:

Shameless plug for our store - Nalu Dry Goods.  Come in for a visit - shop or just say hi!

4 E Main St. Bay Shore NY 11706.  Call ahead for hours.  We're usually open Mon-Sat. 631.647.9000

FIRE ISLAND LIGHTHOUSE

Park at Robert Moses Beach Field 5,go to the extreme left of the parking lot once you pass the guard house to find the entrance to the boardwalk.

GARDINER PARK

Separate dog run for big and little dogs and also a walk that leads all the way to a little beach on the bay where you and your pal can take a dip.

WOMEN'S BOUTIQUE

ORIGIN OF ERA

Sustainable style with some Brooklyn flavor.  I got a mini jack knife pendant the size of my pinky, in case I need to escape from a sticky situation.

WEEKEND OUTPOST

TACO GUACAMOLE

Located kind of across the street from Taco Bell, you can get homemade-style burritos on the grills!!!

MEDITERRANEAN EXPRESS

These guys are in the same strip mall as Taco Guac and don't even have a website, but they probably don't need it.

TULA'S

One of the most creative and tasty vegan/vegetarian dishes offerings around and more...my favorite "fancy" spot!

Delicious food?  Check.  Acai bowls?  Check.  Great for post beach session?  Yesssss!!!

BUBBA'S BURRITO BAR (ISLIP)

If you're a local, you know this spot, you know to call early & you know to expect a busy signal when you call.  It's that good.
