Amagansett, New York
Managed by The Swim Guide

The Amagansett Beach Association is located about a mile south of the Amagansett commercial strip on Route 27, at the end of Indian Wells Highway, which has a large public parking lot. As the beachgoing population at Indian Wells Beach has grown, so has the Association, which provided changing facilities and other basic amenities during the 1920's. There are gorgeous views of the Atlantic Ocean. A lifeguard is on duty during summer months. This is a Tier III beach.

Suffolk County Health Services tests the water quality from a month prior to Memorial Day until Labor Day. Tier I beaches are tested 2-3 times per week and Tier II beaches are tested at least once per week, with more frequent testing at beaches where water quality changes often. Tier I and Tier II beaches are retested if a sample exceeds water quality standards. Additional samples are taken from Tier I and Tier II beaches prone to water quality issues from stormwater runoff after heavy rainfall. Several samples are taken from Tier I and Tier II beaches. The samples are taken at knee depth, near known and potential pollution sources and from the most popular swimming spots.
Tier III beaches are tested once a month from June 15 to Labour Day.
