What do you do when you have houseguests on the North Fork? Have no fear, Sheri is here.  

For this time of year, it’s simple. Hit the beach!

Here are five of my absolute faves — three on the Sound, two on the Bay — along with suggestions for something to do afterward and embedded maps to help you find each beach.

Goldsmith Inlet Beach, Peconic

This is a must with fiery Sunsets and a constant current from the Inlet to the Long Island Sound.  It’s dramatic, yet serene.  And on the way back, grab some epicurean delights at Breeze Hill Farm & Preserve.
