A Day at the Beach in the Hamptons is Like No Other

You may have heard that the Hamptons boast world class beaches, and if so, you heard right. The sugar sand ocean beaches are glorious, but there are miles and miles of coastline in the Hamptons, and not all of it is on the Atlantic Ocean. The South Fork is a peninsula dotted with creeks, marshes, ponds and estuaries to enjoy a multitude of watersports away from the fabulous ocean. Fishing, kayaking, motorboating, sailing, paddleboarding and just plain old swimming have created favorite memories of a Hampton summer for locals and visitors alike.

You can have your pick of public Hamptons beaches, but we suggest you visit these local favorites. Chances are they will become yours too.
