The Hamptons are virtually synonymous with ritzy summer weekends, and part of the area's appeal is definitely its pristine beaches. Whether you like to spend the whole day in the sun or just take a brief sunset stroll, spending time on at least one of those beaches is an essential part of any Hamptons visit, even if you're only there for a quick trip.
Sagg Main Beach consists of 1,500 feet of ocean shoreline on the South Fork of Long Island. The beach is open to the public though a parking permit is required as is a permit for 4x4 access. Popular activities include fishing and surfing, with available volleyball courts and an overlook platform. The beach is handicap accessible as they offer sand wheelchairs to disabled visitors.
Even though this beach is right in the heart the Hamptons, Sagg Main feels a bit more low-key than you might expect in an affluent area like the Hamptons. It's got a community feel that's conducive to chatting with the people on neighboring towels and letting the little ones run around. The beach has the spotless sand you'd expect on this part of Long Island. It's great for strolling—and sometimes spotting a boldface name or two, relaxing just like everyone else—even on days when the weather's not 100% picture perfect.
