New Suffolk is a charming beach community with a rich nautical past.
Off the beaten path, New Suffolk has plenty of places to call home. The housing stock in the hamlet is mainly year-round single-family homes and quaint cottages used for summer rentals. While more out of the way than other Long Island beach towns, New Suffolk draws in new residents each year with its tight-knit community feel.
Once home to the nation’s first submarine base, much of the activity in New Suffolk still revolves around water. Busy restaurants and sports bars sit along the water, featuring panoramic bay vistas. Check out hotspots like New Suffolk Beach or Cutchogue Harbor for traditional pastimes like swimming, sailing, and fishing. Over the years, New Suffolk residents have put in a lot of work preserving the picturesque waterfront district, a favorite spot to enjoy sweeping views of the Great Peconic Bay.
