Clark's Beach (Secret Beach)

Greenport, NY

Special access to Secret Beach (Scuba & Snorkel) - LIDA, with a major assist from the Hampton Dive Center is pleased to invite the Long Island dive community to scuba and snorkel at Secret Beach in Greenport.

Access Requirements:

Feel free to bring lunch or something to grill. Naturally, you will be expected to leave the beach clean and orderly. As all "veterans" of Secret Beach will recall, there are no facilities at the site.

This access is the culmination of months of meetings and efforts by LIDA and the Village of Greenport to make this site available. Let's show the Village that divers and snorkelers are responsible environmentally conscious users of our beach and water resources.

This special access is available to all divers, not just LIDA members. We look forward to seeing everyone.

Directions to Secret Beach (Clark's Beach):

Take the Long Island Expressway to exit 73 (sign will say "Greenport, Orient Point"). This is Suffolk County Road #58. Go east on Suffolk County #58 to Northville Turnpike, (this is Suffolk County Road #43.) Make a left and go North on #43 to Sound Avenue. Make a right on Sound Ave (you are now again heading East).

Take Sound Ave for about 20 miles. Sound Ave will become called Middle Road (around the town of Mattituck). Middle Road becomes North Road (around the town of Southhold). You will be on a stretch of road that is right next to the water (Long Island Sound). You will see a "Greenport" sign on the right side of the road, this is 1.5 miles from the turn off on dirt road to Secret Beach. About a half mile before the turn off you will see the Sunset Motel on the left hand side of the road.

When you come to a dirt road on the left (north) side of the road, make a left on the dirt road, follow it to registration. If you miss the dirt road (there is no sign), you will see Eastern Long Island Kampgrounds on the right. Just make a "U" turn and go back to the dirt road.
