If you don't want to pay $40 to park, go about 1.5 miles down from Coopers BCH and part for free. The beach is clean, not many people here on this Monday. No facilities , but you could possible return to Cooper's beach to use their's. We didn't try and not sure if they allow. Enjoy!

“It doesn't get much better than this....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

ok.. so the $40 price tag for non-residents is a little steep, but check with your hotel as there is a good chance they will have a few permits for you to 'borrow'.... if you can't foot the price tag you can always go down one of the side roads for parking and walk down the beach. That said.. this is one of the most beautiful beaches in one of the most beautiful places ever! Having not been there in years I can honestly say it is as amazing as it ever was... very much beloved and very much missed during my time away.

“Just Beachy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

This beach seems to be on a lot of lists for bests beaches. Not sure why? It's just a beach; soft beige sand, ocean water, waves, lots of people, the usual. It's nice but no wow. What it is is one of the few public beaches in an area that's mostly private. There are some facilities here like a snack bar and restrooms. Parking is $40 but hay, it's the Hamptons.

There's lots of beach here so walk down, aways from the entrance, and you can find a less crowded space to sunbath.

Also, if you go early, drive a little farther down Meadow Lane where there's a small, free parking area (do not try parking in the resident only places/spaces along the way though!) If you're lucky you'll get a space. If not, you got to view some of the most magnificent houses on the planet in a dream location. Enjoy!

“Nice beach but nothing there”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

Nice beach but nothing there apart from a car park, cafe and big houses. Our impression was that there is not much encouragement to visit the beach, e.g. no promenade, restaurants, bars, kiosks, nor even any real footpaths or directions from town. We presume this is to appease the owners of the USD 40m houses that dominate the sea view. There is no beach "culture" considering this is a seaside resort
