With no shortage of beaches to choose from on the East End, we all have at least one that’s our absolute favorite. There are ocean beaches, bay beaches, ponds, and lakes in the Hamptons, but we want to know: Which one is the one that you frequent the most?

Beach parking permits can get seriously expensive: A village permit for the Town of Southampton will cost non-village residents a whopping $450 for the season, while parking at Cooper’s just for the day takes $50. So a lot of people choose not to go to those beaches and opt instead for town ocean beaches, beaches with free parking, and the bay.

Lots of Hamptonites also enjoy going to ocean beaches for sunbathing, swimming, and people-watching, and decide to go to the bay beaches for water sports or shell collecting.

Do you have a favorite beach in the Hamptons? Do you have multiple favorite beaches? Which is the absolute best one to go to? Tell us in the comments.
