Very beautiful

The sweep of the beach is majestic especially with no one on it. Beautiful time of year for a quiet walk with the waves lapping the sand.

The Beach at East Hampton was nice in the August> The Parking was tough to find, and it was pretty crowded, but the beach was well maintained.

My hometown: boasting a wide swath of sandy beach for all the public to enjoy! On this particular village beach there is a main traditional cedar shake building with covered porch that offers bathroom facilities and a snack bar featuring the usual summer fare of food choices.

We went early October this year but last year we visited in summer. The beach was wonderfully quiet and still a great place to spend an afternoon!

I bet this beach is packed all summer and hard to get to, but we were there on a Monday and Tuesday in October, with our dog, and loved it. We parked with no problem and had a whole patch of beach all to ourselves. Gorgeous beach.

180 degree panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean, with a number of Easthampton Mansions adorning the raised shoreline behind the southern portion of the beach, make for a gorgeous contrast of nature and man's handiwork; The sand: clean, golden and non-sticky; The waves normally are of medium intensity (NOTE, on Aug 27, 2014, due to an atypical confluence of the...
