WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Wouldn’t it be great to sip a summer beer with your feet in the sand and the waves touching your ankles? We thought so too. And so did the people at Navy Beach. With their deployed fleet of umbrella-covered picnic tables dotting the sand on Montauk’s north side, you’ll get the chance to gram your east end summer in all its glory.
Popular for its food as well as the beachy drinking vibe, Navy Beach is a Montauk mainstay that’s been operational since 2010. With the power of professional hospitality training (we’re looking at you, Cornell Hotel School) and background, the team at Navy Beach bring you a true five star experience in a place that’s anything but stuck up or stuffy.
The views out onto the water include the remnants of old US Navy piers that were formerly in actual military use. The interior has the old maritime vibe in full effect, and it’s this throwback to the Montauk of yesteryear that keeps this place so authentically east end.
Pro tip: their crispy Portuguese octopus, paired with a light beer, is what out east dreams are made of.
