Overrated surfers beach. Use to be one of the better beaches for locals many years ago. Now, just an overrated beach for surfer dudes. Beach has been washed out by bad storms over the pass two decades. What beach that is left is sand trucked in every year at the tax payers expense to please a high percentage of those... More

I liked the beach, ocean and shorebirds and the land birds that find shelter there. I will add Fort Pond. I am disappointed that hunting is allowed there. Many species are disappearing. Canvasbacks are seriously declining, and yet hunting persisits. Scoters are also experiencing problems. NO ONE MONITORS to see if quotas of killings are exceeded. Also, sometimes hunters shoot...

This is not a friendly beach, the locals make it clear if your a visitor you should know your place. It is a nice little beach, with a cute refreshment van. It looks like a great surfer beach but I'm not to sure you'd be to welcome to surf if your not and or a local or very good. When... More

BEAUTIFUL!!! Went down Ditch Plains Road and caught the beach down a side roach. Several side roads lead straight to the beach. Best spot was near these rocks. Waves were awesome and the morning sun shines down so warm and nice.

We drove to Ditch Plains Sunday morning to watch the ocean. It was cool and breezy and the waves higher and wilder than usual due to the hurricane off of Bermuda. We were treated to a show of about 2 dozen surfers bobbing and riding the waves. A delighful morning.

We love to walk to the ditch to watch the surfers. We really hope that the new owners of the East Deck don't discourage the surfers from coming there.

This is a great beach for anything you want it to be from surfing to relaxing. If you don't surf, it a fun place to watch some awesome ( and not so awesome) surfers.

Surfed here as a kid and the beach is still amazing. Beach plums in dunes, beautiful beach and cliffs. Just to spend an afternoon on the beach in the water and watching the surfers re-living my youth makes me feel great. Love the morning mist and the crash of the breakers onto the rocks.

You don't have to drive all the way to the cape to enjoy the beach. just love it here and the waves are just high enough to surf comfortably. Beautiful view and great location.
