Local Area Information

Westhampton Beach is a village in Suffolk County’s Town of Southampton on the scenic South Shore of Long Island, New York. It is bordered by Westhampton on the west and north as well as Quiogue on the east and is surrounded on the south by the waters of Moriches, Moneybogue and Quantuck Bays. It shares the 11978 ZIP code with the village of West Hampton Dunes and some areas of Westhampton.

Incorporated in 1928, the village includes a portion of the Westhampton Island to the south on the Atlantic Ocean, occupied by a wealth of breathtaking world-class beaches and private beach clubs offering a varied assortment of aquatic sports and activities. These prime destinations are accessible by boat and either of the two drawbridges on Jessup and Beach Lanes. It is not hard to see why many consider this area a part of the fancy Hamptons neighborhoods and it is not just because of the word “Hampton” in the village name.

Westhampton Beach is primarily residential with a rich diversity of single-family homes and other excellent housing options for both year-round and seasonal residents. It features many prime waterfront properties with exclusive beach and docking rights as well as captivating water views of the bay or ocean or both.

Lots of other perks and benefits are enjoyed by residents of Westhampton Beach co-ops and condos, such as Yardarm Beach, Library Estates, High Dune, La Coquille and Ocean Dunes. Houses in the village vary from 1-bedroom rentals to 4-bedroom homes to larger, higher-end luxury residences on huge lots. There are also new constructions and many homes with pools, first-floor bedrooms and other features and amenities.

Offering a small-town feel with a sophisticated vibe, the village features a lively downtown on Main Street, along which many high-end shops and dining options are clustered, catering to trendy summer tourists with plenty to spend, along with the renowned Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center.

Beaches & Parks

Cupsogue Beach County Park boasts 296 acres of lifeguarded white sand beaches for swimming, sunbathing, scuba diving, picnicking, seasonal special events, and some of the island’s finest saltwater bass fishing. Camping and recreational vehicles are allowed with permits along the outer beach access road, as is diving at the Moriches Bay side during slack tide. The park pavilion houses the changing rooms, showers, restrooms, concessions, and first aid station, which is EMT-staffed in the summer.

Lashley Beach is a relatively secluded, lifeguard-protected beach that contains showers, restrooms, and parking spaces. Also called Jetty 4, this beach features a small jetty and is a favorite among the village residents. It is located on the Westhampton barrier island on Dune Road, just past the facilities of the Dune Deck Beach Club.

On the southern end of Beach Lane, about two miles east of Lashley Beach, is the site of Rogers Beach, the most popular beach in the village. Like Lashley Beach, it is a lifeguard-protected beach, with similar facilities that include showers, restrooms, and parking, though Rogers Beach also offers a deck and a snack bar.

The Schools

The Westhampton Beach Union Free School District, which has three public schools, serves most of the village. All three district schools are located in the community.

A small southeastern part of Westhampton Beach, a stretch on the barrier island generally east of Rogers Beach, is served by the Quogue Union Free School District.
