The Beach at Montauk

Montauk, NY

Montauk has some nice beaches.  This is one of the public beaches located about a block from our motel.  During the day, the beach was pretty crowded as one would expect during a hot Saturday afternoon in July.  The crowds thinned out towards sunset, but there were still quite a few brave souls swimming in the ocean as late as 8:30 PM.  Many people return to the beach just about sunest, not only to watch the sunset, but to build campfires in the sand and launch paper lanterns.  It's a wonderful way to spend an evening in the summer.


  1. Aaah! Great shot. I love the sea! :-)

    1. The Netherlands has a rich maritime history so I'm not surprised you love the sea. I enjoy being near the ocean myself. Thanks for looking!

  2. I like the way the sea and surf and sky all seem to run together. Nice one.
