Parks & Nature
This is my go-to beach place in the area. It's not in the Hamptons, but it's far east of all the well-known Nassau County Long Island beaches, so it is less crowded without Hampton prices. Daily parking is $18/day between 8:30am - 5pm; free after 5pm. At night they often have live bands with lots of townies getting their dance on.

The famous Fire Island is a unique feature of Long Island - you can't even get to these beaches by car, so there are no cars on this long string of islands. I've never been but it seems amazing!

This is a combination wooded park with lots of naturey things to check out, and a beach. You can go hiking or go on the boardwalk. It's one of the main places to check out on the north end of the island, along Long Island Sound.

The best public beach in the Hamptons. Clean, pretty, and feels intimate. Homes of the wealthy in the area and a nice town to check out. The beach itself is free so if you have a way to bike there, do it; otherwise it's $40 for your car to get in, but hey -- it's the Hamptons.

Food Scene
Looks like your average mid-range American seafood place, but being that this is Long Island the food is so amazingly fresh you'd think it'd be more expensive. Try the 12 raw oysters and/or clam appetizer.

A cafe with good coffee and lunch food, such as seafood sandwiches and burgers. Good for if you're in the Hampton area during the day and need a lunch pit-stop for a good price (However, note it only opens at noon, so not breakfast -- and it is not open Tuesdays and Wednesdays). Right on the marina.
