LOCATION: On the East End at Route 322 which branches off from Route 30 in Red Hook.
What a breathtaking spot made all the more enjoyable by a terraced restaurant, bar and water sports rentals. The hotel will charge for the use of a lounge chair but it is well worth it. Snorkeling is best near the rock formations on either end of the beach.
This residential style beach is a quiet spot to soak up the sun and drink in pure tropical ambience. Condo owners and renters are eligible for the use of comfy lounge chairs. Visitors pay a small fee for the privilege, usually $5, but rates can change. Watch for the rocky bottom near the water’s edge. The lovely on-premise restaurant, Blue Moon Cafe, is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. During the day, it caters to the swimsuit set as well as business diners. Restrooms are available and the hotel has a beach shack for water sports rentals.
