This is a beautiful beach. You can collect shells, fly a kite or watch the boats come in and pass Gosmans.

Great little beach just off the inlet where the water gets a bit rough from the boat traffic. There's bathrooms and a food truck. You could walk the jetty from this beach.

Calmer waters than the Atlantic (south) side of Montauk. Good for kids, especially younger ones. There is RV camping available further down the beach. Be mindful about having a parking pass- I saw enforcement come by pretty early (before 9am).

Protected beach offered less surf and was perfect for the grandkids. There are a lot of rocks on the beach. There are public toilets. You would need a parking permit. Our Hotel supplied it.

Gin beach is on the north shore-east of the inlet to the harbor--just take east lake drive all the way up--pass the airport on your right
