Very nice beach for NY

We love to go to the beach at Hampton, this is the best beach we visited so far, very clean, not too crowded, yes you have to pay 40 USD for parking but its worth it .

One of the best free and relaxing gifts of nature, the beach. I love every corner of Southampton so the beach is one of those perfect spots that everyone should visit and enjoy. Walking, swimming, sunbathing, reading, sleeping and even talking with friends or relatives any activity you choose to do at Cooper's Beach will be enjoyable and unforgettable. Pay... More

Gorgeous ocean! Crystal clear. If you like shells, this is not the place for you but the waterworn stones and seaglass are everywhere. Very cool in September but the quiet at the end of the season is worth the wait!

This beautiful, clean, quiet beach was basically empty on this warm, sunny September day. Those who were there were peaceful adults--no kids, no music--just the sounds of the ocean. The sand is deep and soft. The waves grew increasingly rougher and higher as the afternoon wore on. But the best part? No entrance fee and lots of close parking! The... More

Cooper's Beach is a great place to spend a day on the beach. In addition to having beautiful Hamptons beach there is a snack shack with surprisingly good food including lobster rolls. They groom the beach daily so it's nice and clean. .

I think Cooper Beach is the best beach on Long Island. It is nice, big, clean, the sand is perfect. The facilities could be better considering town charges $50 per car for the parking,$20 for umbrella and some money for the chairs. After 5PM parking is free if you still care but I guess my mention of $50 is ridiculous... More

This is a wonderful beach to relax and enjoy the beauty on all side. The ocean in front, sitting on beautiful sand and the fabulous homes behind. Yes it is for the rich and famous but also for those who feel that way. Take a blanket and enjoy the wonderful beauty of this area.
