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.
