The area known as “The Hamptons” is a section of Long Island at the East End. It is a long stretch of beaches, an escape frequented often in the summer by Manhattanites. While some of these beaches are the quintessential Hamptonian beach, others are more simple and offer a place to simply enjoy the surf and sand. There’s a beach for pretty much anyone somewhere in the Hamptons.
