Shelter Island is a small natural gem that fits snugly between the North and South Forks of Long Island. It is accessible only by ferry - a short ride from Greenport on Long Island Sound, or North Haven, next to Sag Harbor. Surrounded by Gardiners Bay and the Shelter Island Sound, there are numerous pristine inlets, harbors and beaches - all perfect for swimming, boating and fishing. Almost one-third of the island is protected as the Mashomack Preserve – a magnificent oasis of diverse wildlife with numerous hiking trails.  Tranquil and beautiful with an easy living style, there isn’t a single traffic light on Shelter Island. But there is a diversity of hotels and restaurants, public and private golf courses, and a quick ferry ride to the Hamptons and Atlantic Ocean beaches.  Not just a summer residence, Shelter Island is a growing year round community serviced by its own police and fire department, two post offices, a library and a school for grades K through 12.
