About our hotel
Sand, Sunsets and Service
Welcome to The Palms Hotel, Fire Island's premier boutique hotel located in Ocean Beach. Enjoy the pristine beaches, dining, shopping, and nightlife this blissful barrier island has to offer. Our beach town is automobile-free, which adds to its small-town charm, reminiscent of a simpler time. You can indulge in leisurely walks down Bay Walk, which is lined with ice cream shops, restaurants, music, and "beach chic" boutiques. And, of course, our sunsets are absolutely spectacular.
The Palms Hotel was bought by new owners in August 2022. As like-minded entrepreneurs with a passion for Ocean Beach and its beauty, our core values are centered around service, design, and simplicity.

Worth Every Cent
"Joe made me feel like a VIP. I had low expectations for a new hotel on Fire Island, but I was dead wrong. The owner is fantastic, and our experience was phenomenal. It was like a weekend in another era where management treats you like family. Yes, it is expensive - but worth every penny. No other hotel on Fire Island can compare. Spend the money - you will not regret it."

Best Place on Earth and The Palms is the Best Experience on the Island.
"Jon R and his staff are the best in the business and treat everyone like family. The rooms were clean, neat, well-appointed, and decorated impeccably. I have been going to Fire Island for over 30 years and stayed in some of the seediest summer rentals ever. So to have an actual hotel experience on this piece of paradise was a total treat! You will not be dissatisfied. Great view and a great location. The restaurants that are affiliated with the property are amazing. We loved it."

Unexpectedly Comfortable and
"The Palms staff are extremely hospitable people. The rooms are kept in great shape, and they are attentive to detail. The images on the site do not look as good as the real thing. The team went out of their way to make us comfortable and assisted us with arrangements to explore the island. The hotel is in a central part of Ocean Beach, with great access to restaurants."
