The South Shore of Long Islandmarker, in the U.S. state of New Yorkmarker, is the area along Long Island's Atlantic Oceanmarker shoreline. Though some consider the South Shore to include parts of Queensmarker, particularly the beach communities in the Rockawaysmarker such as Belle Harbormarker, the term is generally used to refer to the Long Island coastline in Nassau Countymarker and Suffolk Countymarker. It is often used as a generic name for the entire southern half of Long Island rather than just the area immediately adjacent to the coastline.

The South Shore tends to be diverse in culture and income as it varies from one hamlet or village to another. In Suffolk County, there still remains pockets of old money from the Gilded Age including the country seats of families from the Vanderbilts, Havemeyers, and Bournes to the Gardiners, Bayard-Cutting as well as many others. The South Shore is also home to the world renown seaside resort on its east end. Located on the South Fork this resort called The Hamptonsmarker contains some of the most coveted real estate in the U.S.
