Bayberry Cove Beach is located in Setauket, Town of Brookhaven, along the North shore of Long Island, the island's "Gold Coast". Bayberry Cove Beach gives you access to a unspoiled, uncrowded beach, and a beautiful view on the Long Island Sound.
For those who aren't fans of swimming and sunbathing, the St John's & Country Club is located only minutes away and hosts an 18-hole regulation length golf course. For a more family-oriented outing, you can also visit the Old Field Point Lighthouse. This lighthouse was completed in 1823 and is today maintained by the Coast Guard.

Tier I beaches are tested 2-3 times per week and Tier II beaches are tested at least once per week, with more frequent testing at beaches where water quality changes often. Tier I and Tier II beaches are retested if a sample exceeds water quality standards. Additional samples are taken from Tier I and Tier II beaches prone to water quality issues from stormwater runoff after heavy rainfall. Several samples are taken from Tier I and Tier II beaches. The samples are taken at knee depth, near known and potential pollution sources and from the most popular swimming spots.
Tier III beaches are tested once a month from June 15 to Labour Day.
