Sunsets at Gin Beach are Breathtaking

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.

At gin you are in another world! The constant marine life is abundant great for snorkeling and if you want to sit on your chair you won't be bored! The boats come out the inlet and turn right toward open water! It is a never ending movie to sit and watch boat after boat heading out ! All shapes all... More

We've been going to MTK for 35 + years, mainly on the ocean side. Now that were just a bit older, we sometimes go to Gin Beach for break form the crowds and the craziness on the ocean. The beach is a bit rocky so if you have water shoe's, bring them. The water is beautiful - clean and very... More

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).

I went to this beach because of the good reviews I read here but didn't love it. I have 2 small kids and even though we had Keens, they really needed water slip ins instead. I did notice the posts about the parking permit but forgot so we got a parking ticket for $150 and we had 2 cars there.... More

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.

WeI love going to Gin beach in the morning with a cup of coffee, watching the fishing boats and ferries head out to sea. There is limited parking and restroom facilities at the beach. It's a beautiful place to walk , the landscape changes as the weather, some days calm and tranquil and others winds and waves.

This beach has very gentle waves so great for kids. Sandy generally with some pebbles/shells but they are not an issue. There is a restaurant within walking distance of the parking lot. There are outdoor showers next to the restrooms in the parking lot. There were lifeguards in July but no concession stand on the beach.
