Gin Beach is a wide opened beach stretching for miles eastward, through the County Parks to Shagwong Point.

This beach is the only one in Montauk with a roped off protected swimming area. Lifeguards are on duty from 10am to 5pm. Swimming in unprotected areas is prohibited. EH Town beach parking lot (EH Town permit required). No overnight camping allowed on Town Beaches, but RV camping is allowed on Theodore Roosevelt County Park section of the beach by special permit. No open fires allowed (BBQ grills OK). 4x4 beach driving by EH Town permit only. Public restrooms with showers in parking lot.
