Mapping the Ten Best Swimming Spots in the Hamptons

View as Map

Sure, we can and probably will argue forever about the best spots to swim on the East End. One of the great things here is the sheer variety of beaches: from gentle spots great for the kids or for sedate activities like stand-up paddleboarding to fabulous surf breaks and everything in between. As for pools, there is only one outdoor public pool that we know of, at Montauk Downs State Park, so we added that to the map. Did we miss your favorite? Discuss in the comments.
