Nice Place but CROWDED

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.

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. Play volley ball if you own a net, walk the shoreline and play... More

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.

Main Beach is always a great day. The sand is clean the water looks beautiful. The snack bar has good food for what it is. Meaning it has a lot more than what you would expect a snack bar to have. It is never crowded and its a great place to take a walk and see the mansions on the... More

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...

Clean, great covered deck, outdoor showers, short walk to car. Sand is better than Atlantic Avenue or Amagansett options, though the boogie boarding is better at those spots.

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
