Reviews for Great Gun Beach
Nice Anchorage, 2014-06-16
Captain: , Center Moriches (42)

Nice anchorage unless blowing out of the north. Anchorage is east of the docks. Can get a little crowded during the day but usually only a few boats overnight. The anchorage is outside of the no wake zone but most (not all) boats use common curtousy when motoring through.



Mosquito warning!, 2012-01-28
Captain: , East Moriches (10)

I've grown up on Moriches Bay and there are some wonderful things about it. Unfortunately Great Gun isn't one of them. The beach is beautiful but it is a long walk on a dilapidated boardwalk through mosquito infested breeding grounds. DO NOT attempt to make the walk to the beach anytime near dusk. Watch for loose and missing boards as well as popped nails on the boadwalk. The bathroom is almost more of an outhouse. That being said the scenary from the dock is great, it gets crowded on the weekends but still nice for families. Our town councilman, Dan Panico, has been focusing on trying to fix this place up and hopefully some progress will be made soon.



Mosquitos and Ticks Galore!!!, 2009-07-28

Great place to stay if you have an enclosed cabin where you can shut the doors and turn on the a/c. Have plenty of skin-so-soft or Off. Bathrooms and showers are awefull!

This is near Moriches Inlet. All waters are shallow, even in the channels which are well-marked (they have to be!). Fixed pier dock, open northern exposure, no services, no electric, no water. Boardwalk to ocean with lifeguarded beach.
