Ditch is a special place for me. My first time to montauk was Labor day 2008. I have returned to this same location because of the surf break and hospitality.

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.

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.
