About Dunewood

One of the smaller communities on Fire Island; this charming hamlet is home to ninety-nine houses. There is a small bay beach that provides kids and adults with a place to swim in the Great South Bay while overseen by lifeguards.

Dunewood also has a yacht club, where kids can learn to sail on Sunfish, and resident-only tennis courts where generations have played tennis. It neighbors the reclusive community of Lonelyville where residents find plenty of peace, quiet, and relaxation.
