Gin Beach is opposite Gossmans Dock -across the channel. Good place for kids, not the big waves like at the main beaches. Tons of shells to search. The jetty is fun to walk out on. Watching the fishing boats go in and out is great. Campers are allowed down the beach for a fee. Note: if you are visiting, get... More

The beach was nice without many shells on the sand. But what i did dislike was that there was a lot of logs around.

This beach is usually uncrowded. It is located in a great area across from the Montauk Inlet Seafood Restaurant. There are lots of jelly fish here.

This has been our favorite beach for over 30 years. There are usually less waves and the walks on the beach with dog or kids is always fun, whether it be looking for beach glass, walking on the jetty or watching the sun set from the jetty. The views are spectacular - with the inlet on one side and the... More

Gin Beach faces the north fork so the sun is at your back. That being said, bring your beach umbrella. Sun is sun. Very small waves so it's great for the kids. The beach is a bit rocky and not nearly as pretty as the beaches in town. Worth a try with the kids. Parking permits a must. Bathroom facilities... More

Want to get away from the jam packed ocean beaches, give Gin Beach a try. Less crowded, the water is calm which is great for the kids. Watch the beautiful boats leave the harbor. They have facilities to shower etc.

Love this beach. It's on the north shore so it's a lot less rough than the ocean side. The waves are small and calm and it's a great place to bring the kids and not worry about such forceful waves. Although it does have a lot of small rocks so bring your water shoes!!
