About
This beach in Southampton is a beautiful 500-foot stretch of sand that's perfect for a relaxing day out. You'll be treated to an amazing view of the historic mansions in the distance, plus whales and dolphins playing in the ocean if you're lucky. Sun chairs and umbrellas are available for rent, and there's a lovely beachside cafe when you need a snack break. Non-residents have to pay a parking fee—which is on the pricier side—but the lot is quite spacious. If you want to make the most of your day, visit early in the morning or during the off-season for fewer crowds. – Tripadvisor

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

With the summer crowds gone, this is a magnificent place to sit and enjoy the sight and sound of the ocean. My wife and I did so given we were told whales were feeding regularly close to the shore. Unfortunately they did not appear while we were there.

A large and beautiful beach. It was mid week very early in the season so the beach was very quiet with only a small number of people. We decided to go for a swim in the very cold but very refreshing water. It was incredible!

Consistently rated as one of the best beaches in the US. We visited before the crowds came and it was quite foggy, but the sand was soft and so easy to walk on. It's quiet and secluded - and the day parking passes are quite expensive.

This is Southampton best beach, Cooper's Beach. The Beach is just breathtaking. One of the nicest in the Hamptons. Grab a cab and save on the parking fee.

Nothing but the highest marks for this beach as it ticked all the boxes. Clean, white sand - check. Bathroom facilities and food/drink options - check. The ability to rent beach chairs and umbrellas - check and check. Clean water, sandy bottom, no seaweed and a great beach break allowing for great bodysurfing - checks all around. Plus, there's plenty of beach to go around so you didn't feel hemmed in. Yes, you'll pay a hefty fee to park (~$50/car (get there early)) but it's worth it and money well spent.

The beach is huge and really nice. It would be a great place to go and hang out all day. The water looked a little rough. The beach dips down a decent amount which was kind of scary. The tide was going out. I think I was there around 5pm so parking was free. Given how big that beach is probably not a ton of parking for it. You can walk a long ways each way and see nice houses as well. The building was closed so nothing open that late.

Had three nights here and would highly recommend it as a quiet enough spot but still with lots of activities to do near by if need be.
