Breakwater Beach

5155 Breakwater Road in Mattituck






West Side of Mattituck Inlet

On the West side of the Mattituck Inlet is Breakwater Beach, a large, wonderful beach created by tidal movement after the installation of a jetty by the Army Corp of Engineers in 1906. 

During the summer season, the beach has lifeguards on duty, as well as restrooms and an outdoor shower. A beach wheelchair is available for disabled patrons. There is a small assortment of playground attractions for children. The "rocks" are popular with fishers.

Breakwater Beach has a pavilion with picnic tables and is also the home to the MPD's volleyball courts.

The beach is popular all year round with residents and guests who come to watch the stunning, unforgettable, and ever-changing sunsets.

* Lifeguards only on duty during summer season

WARNING! A sandbar has formed on the Eastern side of the Breakwater Beach jetty inside of the Mattituck Inlet. This is not a swimming beach and is not under the protection of the lifeguards. Under no circumstances should this be used as a beach. Last season, someone needed to be rescued here and 2 years ago someone drowned further down the inlet. This is a very hazardous area due to boat traffic and the swift current in the inlet.
