Fresh Things to Do

Featured Activity

  • Surf, Sand Dunes, and Celebs

    Infamous for celebrity sightings and grand soirees, the Hamptons aren’t just a place to see and be seen. These groups of villages and hamlets also grant a seaside escape in New York's very own backyard. Whether you're looking for a day of tranquility or an afternoon of revelry, there is a beach to meet your mood.

    Main Beach - Ocean Avenue. Regarded as one of the more exclusive beaches in the Hamptons, Main Beach is known for its white sand, great surfing conditions, celeb sightings, and one heck of a fireworks show on the Fourth of July. It's also the only beach in the area that enjoys a considerable food and beverage pavilion. Get there early to secure your spot on the sand.

    Georgica Beach - Lily Pond Lane. Three hundred feet of beach is all you need to sidestep waterfront carousers and Hollywood VIPs. Georgica Beach's low-key scene offers an ideal intermission for those seeking solitude. To the west, Georgica Pond nearly meets the ocean as swans glide elegantly across the water. Pack for the day and concede to the notion of serenity.
