Lloyd Harbor Professional Review and Guide
"Launching from the beach at the end of Southdown Road puts you on the water a bit west of the entrance to Huntington Harbor and due south of a long and narrow spit of land that makes up the tip of the Target Rock National Wildlife Refuge. While the boat traffic heading into and out of Huntington Harbor may be significant, the half-mile crossing to the refuge on Lloyd Neck should be pretty easy to accomplish. The area west of the harbor entrance does have quite a few boats floating on their moorings which do require some attention, though their speeds should be fairly slow whenever they are moving and thus, be easy to avoid. If the wind is calm and boat traffic at a minimum during the crossing, the Huntington Lighthouse that sits just beyond the harbor entrance makes a worthy photo stop. (See page 68 for more information on the light.)"
