Coopers Neck Beach

Southampton, New York
Managed by The Swim Guide

Selected by "Dr. Beach" in 2010 as America’s best beach and, more recently, by National Geographic Traveler as the Number 2 family beach, Coopers Beach is definitely a local champion. Here you will find grassy dunes, soft sand, and stately mansions. The only village beach with lifeguards, Coopers also gives visitors the option to rent chairs and umbrellas. There is a large parking lot, a pavilion with concessions, bathrooms, and showers. Seasonal and daily parking stickers, required between 9:30am and 5pm during summer, are available at Village Hall and at the beach and are free for residents. Surfcasting, launching power boats and surfing outside of designated areas are prohibited during these times. If the parking fee is too steep, ride a bike from Southampton Village; the newly launched SpotRide will take you there for free! Camping, bonfires, alcohol, littering, nudity, and unleashed pets are prohibited. This is a Tier III beach.
