Beach was ok. Could use a little tlc. No public bathrooms. I think that is a hint. I prefer Fire Island, Montauk for out east beaches.

One of the most beautiful beaches I've ever ever seen. So gorgeous, clean and quiet. Loved it and will be back.

Open 9:00AM-5:00PM which is the time frame that the lifeguards are on duty. But plenary of people were swimming and the signs seem to be simply a CYA statement. The bathrooms close at 5PM and the snack bar at 6PM but that also means they...More

One of many beautiful east hampton beaches. This one has lifeguards. But it has no access for any cars except for those locals with a sticker. So it is quite a hike there from anyplace in town. Even people from East Hampton can't go here...More

There had been a great deal of hurricane activity so the surf was roaring! Our group was content to just smell the salty air and watch the beautiful surf on a lovely sunny day!

Good facilities but yet minimalistic. Still the most crowded of the east hamptons beaches. Lovely sand.

In top 2 of the beaches we visited in East Hampton. Easy to get to, access to clean bathrooms and a snack shack for a quick afternoon bite. Food there was not bad for a quick fix.

There is a hotel called the Hedges Inn thats really nice. Also the Huntting Inn is also real nice. I would recommend Hedges Inn though because it is in walking distance from Main Beach.
