Main Beach is on the eastern edge of Long Island in East Hampton, New York. This prisitine shoreline has sand which is soft and stretches endlessly between the dunes and the waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

There’s plenty to do at this upmarket location. You can rent surfboards, kayaks, or paddle boards or even take a lesson if you are just learning. There are lifeguards to make sure that you are safe in the water and you will also find a snack bar, restrooms, and showers.

You can take a picnic on this beautiful clean white sand and then go for a walk alongside the waters. Take in the scenery and look at the wildlife that makes a home of the dunes.

Whether you want to take a day trip from New York City or you are staying in East Hampton, this is a beautiful pristine beach. Main Beach is just a short walk to hotels, restaurants, and multi-million dollar real estate. There are many shops and boutiques in East Hampton, and you can browse them after a day at the beach. Just keep in mind that this beach was ranked the seventh most expensive in the world.
