Shinnecock is a fantastic spot to surf fish. For blue and striped bass fishing the inlet off the rocks early morning is almost a guarantee to go home with fish. You don't even need bait! 2-3 oz silver metal any brand.

This is by far the best beach on Long Island. Excellent for those with 4x4 vehicles to access the beach!

I have a motorhome that can't use the camp spots, no 4 wheel drive. However, it is a lovely place to drive out to and dump the RV tanks! They are very sweet there and you can enjoy a beautiful view while doing the dirty work.

This is the place to go if you have a vehicle that can drive on the sand. You can pull right up to the water's edge and decamp onto some of the best white sand and surf in all the Hamptons. Crystal clear water, great boogie boarding, body surfing and swimming. No lifeguards, though, and always watch for rip currents!

Flanking the eastern border of the Shinnecock Inlet where it meets the Atlantic Ocean, this rugged, undeveloped barrier beach park includes both ocean and bay beach recreation areas.

The beach is beautiful, camped on it. Watch out for Security named Marty, she almost ruined our vacation with her NASTY demeanor.

Excellent beach! We travel an hour just to go to this beach. It is well worth the drive. You have to get there early to get a good spot however.

Awesome beach - as are all the beach out in the Hamptons. However, if you're looking for solitude, stay clear of Tiana Beach on Saturdays. EDM music is blasting from Neptunes all day.
