Bayville

Surrounded by water and wealth, the Village of Bayville is on the far northern tier of Nassau County's North Shore. What was once just known as a summer retreat it has become an affordable year round oasis in an exclusive setting.


It was once referred to as "Pine Island" and became known as the Incorporated Village of Bayville in 1919. The village is located on the Long Island Sound and faces Greenwich, Connecticut. It is located within the town of Oyster Bay.


It is and has an authentic small-town feeling in a place where local zoning forbids condominiums, or co-ops. 


Its plentiful private beaches along with the three village beaches (Soundside, West Harbor and, Creek Beach) and three Town of Oyster Bay beaches (Centre Island, Ransom and Stehli) provide days often ending with glorious sunsets.


Bayville has its own public library, post office, volunteer fire department, garbage pick-up and water department. There are two churches, St. Gertrude's Roman Catholic and the Village Church which is United Methodist. It has a low crime rate and is policed by Nassau County. Bayville is in the Locust Valley School District.


According to the United States Census Bureau, the village has a total area of 1.5 square miles (3.9 km2), of which 1.4 square miles (3.6 km2) is land and 0.1 square miles (0.26 km2), or 3.42%, is water. The population was 6,669 at the 2010 census.
