Local Area Information

Bayville is an incorporated village in the Town of Oyster Bay, Nassau County, on Long Island, New York. Its neighbors include the villages of Centre Island to the east, Mill Neck to the south and Lattingtown to the west, all of which are located along the North Shore of Long Island, also referred to as the Gold Coast for the number of magnificent country homes and manor houses built in its wealthy communities during the Gilded Age.

Also called “Pine Island” at times, Bayville is a premier waterfront destination overlooking the Long Island Sound and facing Rye and Greenwich in Connecticut to the north. The charming, tranquil village offers splendid single-family homes and a small-town, suburban feel with its lovely tree-lined streets and breathtaking views while also offering a burgeoning downtown with shops, restaurants, bars and nightlife.

Bayville’s residential homes include a number of waterfront properties affording stunning water views of the Sound, Mill Neck Creek or the Oyster Bay National Wildlife Refuge. There are also plenty of rental properties and 4-bedroom homes, though others, such as some multifamily dwellings and luxury residences, have 5 bedrooms or more. Many homes offer different amenities and features, including first-floor bedrooms and private pools. The village also has several remaining undeveloped vacant lots.

Many of Bayville’s commercial areas are clustered along Ludlam and Bayville Avenues, more particularly near the western and eastern ends of the latter. Some establishments are beachfront properties offering dining, accommodations and special event venues with excellent sunset and water vistas. The annual Bayville Waterside Festival is a long-standing village tradition typically celebrated with live bands, rides, food and fun activities.

The Bayville Fire Company protects the village along with Centre Island and a portion of Mill Neck. As with many other neighborhoods in the Town of Oyster Bay, the village is patrolled by the Nassau County Police Department’s 2nd precinct. The community uses the 11709 ZIP code.

Beaches & Parks

Bayville Adventure Park is a popular pirate-themed recreational facility with tons of attractions and amusements, including an award-winning miniature golf course and arcade, bumper boats, bungee bounce dome, funhouse, water slide, jungle adventure, and mazes. It also offers a drive-in theater with dinner, an ice cream parlor, the Bayville Winter Wonderland, and the Bayville Scream Park.

Centre Island Beach boasts 650 feet of white sand beaches along the Long Island Sound and Oyster Bay Harbor. It offers Sound and bay side swimming, kayak launching and night surf fishing, and is home to a football field and two basketball courts. A concession stand and lots of parking spaces are also available at this Town of Babylon facility, which serves as a venue for a few community events, such as the annual Turkey Trot 5K and beach concerts.

About five minutes west of Centre Island Beach is the Charles E. Ransom Beach, containing an 800-foot stretch of pristine beach along the Long Island Sound. Though this beach does not allow swimming, nor dogs, it does offer a playground and an expansive parking area with an overlook for watching exquisite sunset views over the Sound. During the summer, this Town of Oyster Bay park offers fishing and live concerts.

Ferry Beach is named such because most of its guests arrived on its shores by a ferry, which provided passenger trips until the autumn of 1937, when it made its last journey from the beach to Connecticut. Today, it is home to the Crescent Beach Club, a prime beachfront establishment and a popular venue for weddings and other special events. This tropical-themed club also offers a beach bar and outdoor dining experience at their seasonal restaurant called “Ocean.”

Soundside Beach overlooks the Long Island Sound and has a playground, gazebo, and large parking lot, and serves as a venue for watching 4th of July fireworks and free concert series. It is located on the northern shore of the village along Bayville Avenue, and right next door is the upscale Wall’s Wharf seafood restaurant with beachfront seating.

West Harbor Beach is home to a somewhat rocky beach for swimming and kayak launching on Oyster Bay Harbor, and the West Harbor Memorial Park, which has softball fields, two tennis courts and a sizable parking space. It holds many of Bayville’s community events, including free summer concerts, children’s fishing competitions, fun runs, kids’ swim races, rowing lessons, kayak races and tennis demonstrations.
