Family Fun on the East End, New York
No one comes to the East End without plans for the beach, BUT most of the Hampton beaches are not public! So, where do you go with kids in a beach town in the blistering heat? Well, that depends on where you are…
Southampton – Cooper’s Beach (lifeguard, bathrooms, showers, chair and umbrella rental)
Hampton Bays – Ponquogue Beach is family-friendly (lifeguard, bathrooms, an outdoor shower, a concession stand and covered picnic tables)
Village of West Hampton Dunes – Pikes Beach (lifeguard, bathrooms)
Shinnecock Canal – Meschutt Beach (lifeguard, restrooms, food stand)
East Hampton –
- Main Beach (snack bar, bathrooms and lifeguards)
- Georgica Beach (lifeguards, bathroom)
- Two Mile Hollow Beach (lifeguard, bathroom)
Amagansett – Indian Wells Beach and Atlantic Avenue Beach (restrooms, a volleyball area, a concession stand and chairs for those who have physical challenges. Indian Wells also has a lifeguard)
Several Montauk and Springs beaches have lifeguards, concession stands and bathrooms, including Ditch Plains Beach, East Lake Beach, Edison Beach and Maidstone Park. Ditch Plains also has a hiking trail. The two beaches in Wainscott have no amenities or parking areas.
Visitors can also opt to rent kayaks, surfboards and paddle boards from outfitters in most towns. Some outfitters also offer surfing and paddle board lessons.
If you prefer to feel the wind in your hair and enjoy the ocean without the crowd, consider spending some time on a boat. The best family options are…
- Sail Montauk
- Sailing Montauk’s Catamaran Mon Tiki
- Mtk Cruises
- American Beauty Cruises & Charters
- Pontoon Paddler
- Peconic Water Sports
There are plenty more boat rental and charter options depending on your budget and personal preference. A simple Google search or visit to Trip Advisor can provide more options.
To escape the heat, you can head over to Riverhead and visit the Long Island Aquarium, where guests are greeted outside by seals and inside by a giant touch tank full of super friendly rays, more than happy to give you a fin-filled high five! Once inside, kids are free to check out the turtles, sea stars, sharks, and octopus, as well as a smaller touch tank. Back outside, you can wade in shallow water and pet horse shoe crabs! The most enchanting part of the aquarium, though, is the beautiful indoor butterfly garden that blankets you in color, floral aroma and soft fluttering friends. Plus, there’s also a bug exhibit, a bird feeding enclosure, sea lion kisses, shark encounters, and lots more!
If you’re not up for the drive to Riverhead, you can stay in the Hamptons and visit the Children’s Museum of the East End where your little one can enjoy running and climbing in the gym, dress up, sensory activities, imaginative play, a giant game of chess, painting, plays and more!
For a quieter experience, you might enjoy strolling along a trail in one of the many conservation parks on the East End. A personal favorite is the Elizabeth A. Morton National Wildlife Refuge. It’s great for seeing a wide variety of local wildlife and for bird watching. It also has a trail that leads to the beach (parking is by donation only and it is a pretty good walk from the lot to the beach). There is a restroom at the refuge but not at the beach and there are no lifeguards. This is an ocean beach, not a bay beach and the current is very strong. As for the wildlife, watch out for the swans and bring some bird seed. If you go early enough in the morning, or between 5-7 p.m., you’ll have a good chance of making some new friends who will eat right out of your hand!
To let your child burn off all that energy, try Riverhead’s indoor amusement park, Safari Adventure. They have open play where kids can engage in hands-on activities, a calming spa area, and soft, inflatable toys and for older kids, a variety of video and skill games. An enclosed area for toddlers is perfect for safe play, while bouncers and slides are sure to bring smiles and giggles. There’s even an obstacle course where kids can test their skills or enjoy a bit of healthy competition.
On lazier days, you may prefer one of the Hamptons many parks, libraries, or old fashioned ice cream and candy shops.
As for kid friendly eateries, most places are American, Italian or bar/restaurant style places.
Westhampton – The Apron Cafe and Holey Moses Cheesecake (which offers way more than cheesecake and has an amazing key lime pie!) Both eateries are at the Gabreski Airport, so they are more secluded and your little one can enjoy watching the planes come and go.
- Melrose Pizza
- Fellingham’s Restaurant and Sports Bar
- Saaz Indian Restaurant (also great vegan option)
- Tate`s Bake Shop
- Citerella Gourmet Market

- The Deli at Water Mill
East Hampton –
The dining possibilities on the East End are endless and there’s no shortage of seafood or fine dining establishments but these are just a few to get you started. There’s also the entire North Fork of the East End, the stretch from East Hampton to Montauk and of course, you could take the ferry and hop on over to Shelter Island (just remember to find out what time the last ferry comes back). There are also some great family friendly wineries, the Greenport carousel and plenty of seasonal activities, like a full on fall festival experience at Hank’s Pumpkintown or cocoa with Santa and horse drawn carriage rides.
