Hamptons Beaches: Where You Can Park & The Rules

Submitted by on July 2, 2009 – 12:04 pm524 Comments

Hamptons Beaches

In order to obtain a Hamptons beach parking permit you must arrive at dawn at the third tree to the left past the windmill with a suitcase of unmarked bills and a tiger’s eyelash.  Just kidding.  But figuring out where to park at the beach if you are not lucky enough to have a resident sticker can be a daunting task.  Here’s the inside scoop on where you can buy Hamptons beaches day parking passes which are generally required between 9am and 6pm in the season.

And someone must have been drunk when they beamed up the satellite because navigation tools and mapping programs have a hard time pinpointing these beaches.  We’ve included major cross streets to help narrow the search. 

 Note that these Hamptons beaches all have restrooms and lifeguards.  Day parking fees can be paid in cash or gold bullion, and although most do take credit cards the slow down just upsets everyone in line behind you.  And get out of bed early, the lots do get full.  You can nap and drool in the sand.

And just so you know, a day at the beach isn’t necessarily a walk in the park.   The Rules as we call them can be numerous so we give you the links to answer your questions of just what you can and can’t do.  We’re not peaking – promise.
