The Hamptons has something for everyone

An established beach retreat for smart New Yorkers, the Hamptons’ pick-and-mix of characterful towns offer properties as luxurious as your yacht perfect for those seeking an East Coast bolthole. The Hamptons are as much a social scene as a summer destination. People buy properties here not just for somewhere to unwind between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day, but as somewhere to don expensive linen shirts and hit VIP beach parties. Each village has its own unique seaside vibe: smart, pared back, bookish. The old whaling port of Sag Harbor is known for its arts scene and trendy restaurants, Southampton hosts the financiers, and Montauk is a popular party town with millennials.

The flight from New York takes just 35 minutes. Helicopter operator Blade, a sort of Uber for Wall Street types, operates weekend flights from Manhattan to the Hamptons. Useful for quick trips to your beach pad.
