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.

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.

This beach is private, so a parking pass is necessary. Park at the public park of Shadmoor and walk through the trails. You will encounter amazing views of the ocean from on top of the bluffs. When you are done with the trails, you can...More

I was unaware that Montauk had this place nestled in the park but was pleasantly surprised when we came upon it on our way to the lighthouse. The views are priceless and the cliffs are so picturesque! Lots of places to hike in the park...More

We enjoyed the spectacular walk on the beach from Royal Atlantic to Ditch Plains. There was a mobile concession to obtain refreshments.
