Where to park your boat is a concern many people in landlocked states wish they had. On that note, here are the marinas you told us were the best on Long Island.
Long Islanders Voted Cedar Beach Marina in Babylon the Best Marina on Long Island!
Cedar Beach Marina
There’s a reason tourists flock to LI during warm weather—our summers can’t be beat. Proof of that can be found any time at Cedar Beach Marina. The Marina has plenty of beachfront sand for lounging about, playing volleyball or taking in some sun. The bar and grill offers some of the tastiest drinks and freshest seafood you’ll find. And live music provides a soundtrack for the day or night.
2nd Place - Montauk Yacht Club, 32 Star Island Rd., Montauk. 888-MYC-8668. www.montaukyachtclub.com
The Montauk Yacht Club is more than just a marina. Located on the hamlet of Montauk, it is the perfect destination for yachting, weddings and meetings in the summer sun. The Yacht Club has been a Hampton’s tradition for more than 80 years. The resort began as three separate estates and became one big beautiful club the summer of 1928. The club’s original membership included J.P. Morgan, Nelson Doubleday, Thomas Eastman, and Harold S. Vanderbilt. So if you’re looking for a beautiful way to spend a day on the east end, the Montauk Yacht Club, number two on the Best of Long island list this year is the place to go.
3rd Place - Danfords Hotel and Marina, 25 E. Broadway., Port Jefferson. 800-332-6367. www.danfords.com
Danfords Hotel and Marina is new, improved and now more convenient. Their 75-slot dock accommodates up to a 250-foot yacht or boat. Danfords also provides their guest with an environment that has a home feel with “amenities” like showers and bathroom facilities and even an on-premises fitness center. Docking your boat at Danford’s Marina isn’t like your average pit stop. They also offer TV, Internet and dining as well as your average gas station so you can relax and eat, then fill up your boat and get back on the open sea. Danfords is the number 3 best marina this year, and with accommodations like these it’s no wonder why we think they are so great.
