Napeague State Park
Great For: Seclusion. Ask any surfer or fisherman, and he’ll extol the virtues of Montauk’s shoreline. Not as well known, however, is Napeague, between Montauk and Amagansett.
T+L Tip: The only way to reach the beach is via a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it right turn off Route 27 East.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
