A Guide to The Hamptons

One of the Summer’s most popular destinations, The Hamptons have long been a go-to for glamorous New Yorkers to escape the heat of the city. Located on the South Fork of Long Island, The Hamptons are comprised of a number of towns and villages, each with their own distinctive style. From the surfing paradise of Montauk to the quiet, picturesque Sagaponack to the celebrity spotting hotspot of Southampton, this week in The Edit we take a look at our favourite places to spend time during your next trip to The Hamptons.



There’s nothing like renting a house for your stay in The Hamptons. Whether you’re only visiting for a week or you’re spending the whole Summer, the privacy and luxury of staying in your own home is something not to be missed.

Live the beach-life

Whether you are looking for a pristine private beach or a hippie escape, The Hamptons covers it all. If you are looking for a glamorous and youthful atmosphere, Flying Point Beach or Gibson Beach are the places to go. Indian Wells Beach or Mecox Beach are the go-to for families due to their quieter nature. Bridgehampton and Water Mill are two of the hippest beaches and Main Beach, ranked best beach in the US, has magnificent views of the Atlantic Ocean and is the perfect choice for everyone’s taste.
