Description

East Hampton is well known as a favorite stomping ground for the rich and famous, and prices for accomodation and parking can be steep, but it's a characterful, charming and scenic place to visit.

Main Beach, nearest to the village of East Hampton, is a gorgeous wide clean beach facing the Atlantic ocean. Facilities include restrooms, lockers and a snack bar. During the summer months, swimming and surfing are popular. It's still very cold, so a quick dip is about all you'll manage. There's normally a lifeguard on duty to keep an eye on you.

Weekends can be very busy, so if you want to escape the crowds of Main Beach, a mile west is the beautiful Geogica Beach, in front of Georgica pond (see 3rd photo, which shows the inlet to the pond). Here you'll find a near empty expanse of glorious white beach backed by tussocky sandbanks.

Away from the beach, be sure to spend some time in East Hampton, a village with a long and rich history. Favorite sights include the 18th century working windmills dotted along Main Street, and Town Pond with its flock of swans.

Why in 100 Best?

After glancing enviously at all the mega mansions, an invigorating walk along the wonderful beach reminds you how the best things in life are free.
