East Hampton Main Beach

On the eastern edge of Long Island, enjoy a day on this exclusive beach complete with lifeguards, restrooms, a snack bar and other amenities.

East Hampton Main Beach is the easternmost town of Long Island as well as the easternmost town of the entire state of New York. East Hampton has long attracted the rich and famous. Its lovely beach is one of the city’s highlights. 

Explore the beach’s pristine shoreline. Spread out your picnic blanket on the clean white sand or walk alongside the undulating dunes. Enjoy stunning views across the Atlantic Ocean. Piping plovers and other wild birds and animals have homes in the dunes.

Bring your own equipment or rent surfboards, kayaks or paddleboards from outfitters in East Hampton. Brave the waves alone or book a surfing lesson from one of the many places in town. Lifeguards on duty watch swimmers and other watersports enthusiasts, ready to offer assistance. 

Appreciate the many amenities at East Hampton Main Beach. Purchase something to eat or drink from the snack bar. Relax in the shade of the Main Beach Pavilion. Public restrooms and showers are available when you need them.

Like many beaches in the Hamptons, East Hampton Main Beach is a quick walk or bike ride to shops, accommodations and other sights. Bask in the serenity of Hook Pond or check out the shops and restaurants that line Main Street. Visit local attractions such as Home Sweet Home Museum and Old Hook Mill, an old-fashioned windmill.

Parking tends to fill quickly at East Hampton Main Beach. If you don't have a season permit, pay for daily parking at the entrance to the parking lot. Consider traveling to the town via train or bus; it’s 2 miles (3 kilometers) from the East Hampton Train Station to Main Beach. 

Visit East Hampton Main Beach daily throughout the year. Unsurprisingly, summer is its busiest season, but the beautiful beach has something to offer visitors every month of the year. Dress warmly to stroll along the sandy shore in fall or winter to appreciate serene isolation.
