Not everyone that heads to the Hampton’s wants to go to the beach but it is one of the big attractions for many people that do visit. There are a large number of nice beaches and they span the length of the Hampton’s coastline.
This page lists the beaches, by named places (village or hamlet). I have also included the nearest access road. If you want directions to any beach, you can easily find them by going google maps. Simply enter the location (e.g. Amagansett) and the road and you should be able to find the beach access/parking lot by viewing the satellite view. From there, click on the “get directions” link and just enter your starting location.
The beaches are managed by the local municipalities and each has their own requirements, rules and amenities (or have none, including no bathrooms). Some have lifeguards during the summer season. All of the beaches require you to have some form of permission to use the beach (a “license,” a sticker for your car, etc.) and what is usually an associated parking area. Some beaches are more open than others. For instance at some beaches you can buy access for the day when you show up. At others you cannot even park at the only access point without a permit and the parking passes are only issued to local homeowners and their renters.
You should check the local municipal site to get more information. If you are renting a house, your landlord should be able to provide you with beach access information and may be able to give you a beach permit (some cannot, because of the local requirements).
