 Access

English (Translate this text in English): Take Montauk highway east out of Napeague. When you see the Art Barge ahead on your left, turn left. If your pass the Lobster Roll restaurant (their sign says "Lunch" in big letters), you've gone too far. If you're on the right road, you'll cross some railroad tracks within 100 yards and will drive along a marshy area full of reeds and cattails. You will be able to see the south end of Napeague Bay on your right as you drive. Parking is an issue - you should park away from the beach; and hike in ;-((

More infos 

English (Translate this text in English): The best winds are from the south or southwest off the ocean. The local geography seems to cause a venturi, cranking a 15-knot breeze up to 25 or so. Southerly breezes are cross-onshore, and southerlies are cross-shore or cross-offshore. Westerly winds are offshore from the launch site, but fairly sailable. Northwesterlies are cross-offshore on port tack.

 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): Napeague Bay is a good-size body of water on the south fork, between the towns of Napeague and Montauk. It is almost a lake, connected to Great Peconic bay [Gardiners Bay] by a small strait at its northern end.
The good sailing is all in the northern half of the bay. The south end of the bay is shallow, somewhat weedy, and has some small boats moored there. Boat traffic is virtually non-existent.

The bottom is sandy. The bay is heated by the sun, and hence quite salty. It's shallow enough that you can stand in most places, especially if the tide's out.

There is very little chop in the bay. On a really cranking day, you might see 6-12 inches... just enough to launch if you try hard. It's a good place for speed runs, jibing practice, and waterstarting.

This is NOT Napeague Bay - The body of water shown here is actually Three Mile Harbor... Napeague Bay is east of here, where the south fork of LI narrows before reaching Montauk.
