Inhale the salty sea air, dig your toes into the white soft sand, and admire those majestic mansions along the oceanfront — you’re in the Hamptons. But beware: Parking is hard to come by and you’ll be fined if you don’t have a resident pass. East Hampton’s sublime Main Beach and Two Mile Hollow Beach offer $25 per day parking on weekdays and a limited number of daily parking tickets on weekends and holidays. Ditch Plains Beach, two miles east of Montauk, is a popular spot to watch surfers and take a swim. (Hungry? Look for the Ditch Witch food truck in the parking lot with a menu scrawled on a beat-up surfboard.) Coopers Beach, considered the gem of Southampton, stretches 500 feet along the Atlantic shoreline. It offers a concession stand, chair and umbrella rentals, bathrooms and freshwater showers.
