NYC to the Hamptons for a day on the beach

Hello All,

We are in New York for a week in August and I would love to take my teenage daughter for a day to the Hamptons, I have looked at the Jitney which has great timings but need to know which stop we should take for the beach..there seems to be Southampton, East Hampton etc... obviously the nearest beach would be great if any kind trip advisors can help it would be much appreciated..

Take LIRR to Southamption and then take a Taxi to Main Beach.

Train is always the best mode of transportation

Coopers Beach in Southampton has bathrooms and showers and is a bit closer than East Hampton although they're equally beautiful and East Hampton Village is a prettier village, imo. I'd go to Coopers for the shower.

You can take the Jitney or the train. There's now a free minivan service from the train stations to the beach.

Hi there, thank you so much for the advise, would you know where the jitney stops in relation to beach? Would it be a taxi ride or walking distance? Thanks again. Sandra
