Welcome to Southampton

Peaceful vacation luxury in a stunning down-home location
Long Island serenity is on full display the moment one steps into Southampton. This iconic part of the Island epitomizes what makes the area so beautiful. With top-ranked ocean beaches and a bustling main street for shopping and dining, Southampton has all the amenities a person could want in a gorgeous nautical setting.
Located along the Hamptons shoreline, Southampton is one of New York’s longest and most respected locations.

Early colonists established whaling as the town’s economic foundation — a tradition that plays into the heritage Southampton embraces today.
