The southern Orient Harbor shoreline is home to the scenic Orient Beach State Park, a 350-acre peninsula featuring ten miles of beachfront. The park features an array of wildlife and plant life, including a rare maritime forest with red cedar trees, blackjack oaks and prickly-pear cacti.

The Long Beach Sanctuary also lies on the southern shores of the Orient Harbor, and it borders the beautiful Gardiners Bay. This wildlife preserve features an array of flora and fauna native to the Long Island region, including magnificent osprey.
