Shelter Island Reviews & Ratings

  • Very peaceful place. Walk along the coastal trail or sit and enjoy the ocean winds and sights of boats. You can also rent fishing rods here and people actually get some fishes. Dont miss the public dock at the end of island.

  • Pretty views and great places to have bonfires down by the water. Parking lot right by the beach and seemed like a safe place to be late at night.

  • Such a beautiful place, saw a concert at Humphrey’s. Plenty of places to walk and take pictures.

  • Nice place to fish and hang out.

  • Love this place!! Great Air BnB Experience walking rescue dogs!!
