“Great Surf”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Best surf spot on Long Island! Great beach with friendly people.
Good for surfing or watching.If you're not from the area parking is a pain unless you get a visitor's pass from your hotel.

“A Surfer's dream”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

The east coasts version of Malibu. Large waves, young athletic bodies, and lots of surfing. Easy to find, centrally located in an area with a number of fun eating places and seaside shops. Montauk is trending upward each and every year and Ditch plains is now known nationally.

“Surf -- or watch”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

When it comes to surfing and beach action, this is the place. Can get excellent surfing instruction -- or just watch the action.

Thoroughly enjoyable.

“Ditch Palnes IS the east end surfing beach of Long island”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Ya need permits for parking or else you WILL get a summons. The beaches are cool with surfers, boards and babes hangin out.
A small concessionair keeps food in the stomach.

Sand dunes and a small jetty make this an attractive beach.
