Marina, Ferry & Mother’s Beach

BELLPORT VILLAGE MARINA

Located at the end of Bellport Lane, the Bellport Village Marina is busy all year round. During the warmer months, sailboat races happen every week and residents gather to socialize while children play on the newly refurbished playground.

When the bay freezes solid during the colder months, hockey games, skating and sledding are just a few of the numerous activities happening while ice scooters race across the bay as fast at the wind will carry them.

The Marina offers a spectacular view of the Great South Bay and Fire Island. It is surrounded by lush park grounds, a playground and a band shell.

There are over 150 berths in the Marina along with a launching ramp and preference is given to village residents. Transient slips are available on a first come, first served basis. Fishing and crabbing from the dock is open to residents only.
