Pretty Beach

Beautiful beach but a little too crowded in the summer. The ice cream shop on the boardwalk was very overpriced and didn't have cones.

I have been to this beach for years and it has always been my favorite beach. Also the lifeguards are amazing! They keep a good eye on the swimmers and don't get distracted. And the beach is clean and soft. But the waves are not really for surfing/boogie boarding because of normal shore break. But in all AMAZING BEACH!

East Hampton main beach is my favorite semi public beach in the north east. Miles of white sand, strong surf, life guards , snack bar, really clean rest rooms for a beach complete w/ seat protectors. Plenty of shaded umbrella tables. You need either an annual village pass $350 or day pass $25. Limited amounts are sold, especially weekends, so... More

We came to this beach to catch a few rays before heading to the city. We originally went to Two Mile Hollow beach a mile or 2 away but parking is reserved for residents only. If you want to park at 2 mile hollow you have to come to the main beach and purchase a parking ticket first! Ridiculous. Anyways... More

We knew we had to try two beaches when coming to the Hamptons and Main beach was one of them. We were lucky to be there still in June before the mass crowds (we heard) arrive. Parking was very convenient and easy to find, it is $25.00 for the day with in and out privileges. The beach was just beautiful... More

We've been to Main Beach multiple times over the years. This is one of the most beautiful beaches we have even been to. The beach is very clean and the ocean is wonderful. My kids have spent many great years with their boogie board here. The parking lot is close by, but we usually pull close to the beach and... More

This was my first visit to the hamptons for work and I was impressed with the beach. While I'm accustomed to carribbean beaches, I did enjoy the cleanliness. I was only here for a half an hour walk and it was very clean and organized. The homes nearby are very nice. The sand is a bit tough ( great for... More

We must have got the right time, because there was no one on that beach. We walked along and found seashells. It really was a very nice day there
