Gorgeous sea and sand with plenty of parking. Just need to pay if not a resident. A must see for all seasons. July 4th fireworks are fab!

The beach itself is beautiful but the people there are crazy and there are too many of them there. You can find beaches just like it and better without the crowds and annoyances. But, I have to say the concession stand is lovely and the fries are fantastic!! There is also a mat leading down to near the water which... More

Used to be a nice quiet beach mostly with locals and day tripping families. Now, seems the day trippers are coming with car loads of people who otherwise don't spend time in Southampton...in town, dining, shopping etc. Overcrowded, with a higher tattoo factor who can't seem to put garbage in the garbage cans, smoking on the beach, and tossing footballs,...

"Dr. Beach" consistently rates this in the Top 10 Beaches in America, and for good reason. It'll cost you a sunburned arm-and-a-leg for a day permit, if you're not a "local," but it's well worth the trip.

That's not me saying that, it's Doctor Beach, who rates beaches around the US in an effort to pick those that are the best. Coopers Beach is ALWAYS in the Top 10 and frequently in #1 place, even when going up against Hawaii and California.

Kids love the beach. We love the beach. Coopers is cool...usually pretty full in summertime. But, it's neat viewing all the fancy looking beach houses while chilling on the beach. The beach itself is great for relaxing, kicking a soccer ball, etc... The main house is equipped with bathrooms and food in summer. Overall, nice hot spot.

This is a wonderful beach and worth the price of admission. Where else can you sit on the most beautiful beach in the world, have a lifeguard, clean bathrooms and get something to eat. The food is typical fast food fare but its THERE.

We are lucky to live near this beach. Just sat there today and saw two deer run along the beach into the dunes. A nature lover's delight!

Beautiful and clean but if you don't have a hotel pass, which some hotels provide, parking can be expensive.

Beautiful beach, lovely views of a calm Atlantic. Well worth the drive. We just spent a little time taking pictures, but you could easily spend the whole day here
