Kirk Park Beach Rating
Beach Personality: Feels Remote But Actually Really Convenient To Downtown Montauk
Kirk Park Beach
Kirk Park Beach has over 500 yards of sandy beachfront. The sand is soft and light beige and the water is clean, but cold and wavy. It’s a great beach for surfers, body boarders and body surfers. As a result of the rough surf, if you are there with children keep a close eye on them even when lifeguards are on duty.
South Emerson Avenue separates Kirk Park Beach from its parking lot and Kirk Park. There is an IGA supermarket next to Kirk Park, which makes a very convenient stop for snacks, drinks, and beach paraphernalia. The access to Kirk Park Beach is across South Emerson Avenue at designated pathways through the dunes that line the street.
