Island - Resorts and Lodges in New York
New York may not have a lot of traditional island resort getaways, surrounded by sun and sand, but it does feature one of the most recognizable islands in the contiguous 48 states: Long Island. Both the longest and largest island in the Lower 48, Long Island extends 118 miles eastward from New York Harbor to Montauk Point, with a maximum north-to-south distance of approximately 23 miles between Long Island Sound at the Atlantic coast. Long Island is also the most populated island in a U.S. state or territory (7,740,208), and is the 17th-most populous island in the world (ahead of Ireland and Jamaica). If you are flying into New York, there is a better than average chance you will be flying in to Long Island as two of the state’s largest airports, LaGuardia and JFK International, both reside on the 11th largest island in the United States. Plan a unique island getaway and head to New York today.
