This beach is easy to get onto. Quiet. Draws a good crowd. Has showers, bathroom and a nice food truck. You will need a Town of East Hampton Parking Pass to park at the beach.

Its a lovely beach with a wild sea in the autumn. Great for surfers. Off season, it's a but empty and really windy. Warm cloth required.

While in MONTAUK Hither Hills is an epic spot for surfing or sunbathing. The Ditch Witch along with all the personalities makes a fantastic time for all. Can't wait till the next time :)

Great beach and surfing if you can get a pass. Get there early if you do have a pass. Lots of surfers, surf camps and families. Lifeguards on duty during the day.

If you like to surf, or just to watch surfing, this is THE place on the East End of Long Island. It's largely locals, and especially great when the waves are larger.

This is a beautiful beach with great waves for surfing. You need a pass to park as there is no public parking and people actually "fight" over parking spaces.

Like everyone else has probably mentioned here: Beautiful beach, cliffs and rad surfing. I learned to surf here (Corey's Wave). People, keep this place clean and quiet! Don't litter or make scenes please. Let's keep the animal life as chill as the natural surroundings.
