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...

We passed through the Hamptons today to check out the real estate and the scenery. We had heard such great things, but now we wonder how folks can even live or play here. The traffic is terrible. Bumper to bumper from Southampton to Montauk. On Monday! We finally ended up at the beach parking lot, confronted by yet another New... More

Amazing wide beach area with deep soft sand. Concessions are open in the season and offer great burgers and sandwiches. Just a great family beach that never feels too crowded!

BTW, and might sound crazy, but in EH, Jersey is on the... More

Not only is it a beautiful long, wide beach there are also real bathrooms (not porta potties) and a full snack bar with lifeguards and roaming safety vehicles. Good for all - couples, families with teens &/or young kids and singles as well. Susan going there each summer
