The Hamptons and Long Island
Long reigned as the vacation spot of choice for the Manhattan elite, The Hamptons continues to be a beautiful and charming seaside destination, dotted with extravagant white clap-board mansions and swanky country clubs for elaborate summer parties.
Located on the southern strip of Long Island peninsula, sandy beaches are frequented by rich New York city goers, starved of sunshine and relaxation during the colder months. With waves perfect for surfing and restaurants celebrating farm-to-table cuisine, The Hamptons is the kind of place you think of when dreaming of an American summer on the Eastern Shore. Although the collection of villages on this part of Long Island is home to the country’s most expensive real estate, including homes, shops and restaurants, it’s not all fancy frills - expect to find some of the most unspoiled family-friendly beaches and unique crab shacks along the way.
