Lucky enough 6 more weeks ahead await for Rubin, Bruna and I. Very few places in the world give me so much peace and happiness.

GPS Carlos Melia back in Fire Island

Fire Island by www.carlosmeliablog.comGPS Carlos Melia back in Fire Island  |  Fire Island, United States  |  After a great weekend last week of the holidays, I went back to New York city to take care of some business, and as quick as I could, I got back to Fire Island. My favorite time to be at the island is during the week, when it is quite and you can concentrate on relaxing, working, unwinding, cooking and walking by the beach. The time when the deers come out and you can spot them while running along the boardwalk by the beach. Thursday and I have already began my weekend mode. Here is my day in photos. My day upon arrival after 4PM, was at the outdoor pool sipping Rose aux Provence. Then off for a run by the beach. Finally cooking a healthy meal and dining at the deck enjoying the sunset. A typical day week at Fire Island, before the weekend craziness begins. More to come for sure over the weekend. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends

Holiday Weekend at Fire Island in Photos

Fire Island PINES by www.carlosmeliablog.comHoliday Weekend at Fire Island in Photos  |  Fire Island, US  |  It’s almost every year for the last 6 years, that we come to Fire Island to spend long Holidays Weekends and others. It’s the opening the Summer 2013 season. Although some of the public areas remain closed, like the iconic Pavillion, Fire Island is always a great getaway from the Big Apple. This year, we are at a new beautiful house on the bay side, only minutes away from the harbor, with fantastic views of the water beyond the outdoor pool. Despite the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, Fire Island looks beautiful as always, including the beach line. Hope you like my morning walk photo album after my coffee at the Canteen. Read my past and previous Fire Island post for more info. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends

Fire Island Weekend gateway Summer 2012

Fire Island Weekend gateway Summer 2012  |  Fires Island, United States  |  Fire Island located only a two hours away from Penn Station, New York City. Not many people overseas know about this full Gay Spring/Summer Weekend Gateway.

I am guilty of all the of them, I year after year, it has always been the best gateway to leave the city for a weekend, and change the air. Continue reading Fire Island Weekend gateway Summer 2012

SouthBay Clipper to Fire Island

SouthBay Clipper to Fire Island | New York, Fire Island |  so you may ask yourself how do I get to Fire Island ? Well here is how. (1). Take the Long Island Railroad from Penn Station to Sayville. Transfer trains in Jamaica or Babylon Station. Check Fares and Itineraries here. (2).  At Sayville Station a $5 bus will be waiting to take you to Fire Island ferry. If you are traveling off-peak season, call Colonial Taxi at 631-589-3500 for a lift to the ferry. (3). Take the Fire Island Pines ferry which is $14 roundtrip. Schedules are listed here. Travel time fro NYC to Fire Island Pines: 2 – 2.5 hours. FYI on the boat you are allowed to bring pets for an extra charge (of course they know we love our pets right)
They have announced other alternative ways to get to PINES for the season like the FIPBUS. But I have checked their website and at the moment is down. FIPBUS.com – We’ll take you to the Pines and back for only $20 a ride. The FIP BUS is part of our Fire Island 101 program that introduces newbies to the Pines. If you’ve never been to Fire Island, you have no idea what you’re missing.
Been to all of them Provincetown, Asbury Park among other gay hot spots in the United States… and for accessibility, fun and beauty I personally have Fire Island Pines on the TOP of my list. CM
