DIRECTIONS: Go south on the QH. At the stop sign(!), turn right. It’s that simple.
Gordons marks the southernmost settlement on Long Island. And the few residents there get to enjoy the finest Caribbean side beach on the island. And some would rank it as the finest beach on either side of the island. The roughly 2 miles of fine white sand is a delight to walk and the water is wonderful. For those so inclined, one can make the 1.5 mile walk to South Point, the southern tip of the island, where there is excellent shelling. Allow at least three hours for this. In regards to swimming, do be advised that the waters here can be home to numerous sharks as the island’s commercial fishermen often release their chum on their way back to port. Note that a bit inland there are some tower ruins on a high point indicated on a nautical chart. I haven’t ascertained if there is a path to these ruins. If you discover one, please let me know.
Gordons: definitely a must see and enjoy.
