Long Island

With its white sand beaches and sheltered ports, Long Island is a dream holiday destination. The western part of the island, populated and bustling, cannot compete with the lovely eastern tip, where holidaymakers are spoilt for choice, between nautical and seaside activities, horse rides and excursions. Wealthy New Yorkers set up home for the summer in their dazzling summer residences in the Hamptons, while walkers enjoy the dunes, rocky indentations and sheer cliffs.
