Ditch Plains looks more like a stonemason's yard rather than a lovely sandy beach right now. The winter storms, most notably Superstorm Sandy, have scoured away the sand, leaving mostly rocks and chunks of concrete. East Hampton's town recreation superintendent is therefore recommending that the beach remain closed to swimming. The town has been discussing dumping sand there, but nothing has been done. Until then, anyone venturing in the surf is advised to be very, very careful.
