Hamptons waterfront properties you can get for under $5M

Waterfront properties can often reach over $10M, but we’ve compiled multiple more affordable options

View as Map

Waterfront properties are relatively easy to come by in the Hamptons—the problem, however, is finding something affordable. Many waterfront properties can easily have eight-digit asking prices on the East End, just for being on the water—and the price gets steeper with ocean frontage. But water views and access can be a bit more affordable if you decide to go for something with bay, pond, or creek frontage rather than something on the Atlantic.

We’ve compiled homes that are currently for sale with water frontage across the Hamptons from Westhampton to Montauk, all for under $5 million.
