Shelter Island Overview

NESTLED BETWEEN THE NORTH & SOUTH FORKS OF LONG ISLAND, Shelter Island is a unique community that seamlessly combines quirky, artsy, rural and cosmopolitan; it is a place where cultures relax, work and play together, from the farm stands to the country club.

There are over 70 boat landings open for residents.
