You must have a resident's pass to park or have someone drop you off for a few hours to watch the surfer's master the waves at this iconic beach.

Beach was not super crowded. Water was cool but refreshing. We watched some surfers paddle boarders. The beach was clean, water clear. Just classic.

Quiet, crowdl-ess beach with awesome cliffs and surfers. (Note: having to write more than desired affects the validity and reliability of this survey.)

If you love to surf, go here. It is the ultimate surfer's spot in Montauk. It is, however, a very small beach and gets extremely crowded in the summertime.

This restaurant offers a lobster bake on Sundays and Mondays for $30. Good food and not a bad value. Would return again for certain.

Surfing and sun and seeing celebrities but parking is hard even with permit but worth the wait and having bond fires at night
