East Hampton is one of the most renowned beach towns in the United States, known for its stunning oceanfront real estate, fine dining and celebrity sightings. In many ways, it’s the epitome of Hamptons “glitz and glamor” – yet there is so much more to it than that. The village of East Hampton has been referred to as “America’s Most Beautiful Village,” offering a unique blend of boutique shops, world-renowned restaurants, quaint cottages and historic landmarks.
As a locally operated East Hampton limousine service, we’ve created this brief travel guide to help you explore everything the village has to offer.
Overview of East Hampton
For anyone seeking the complete Hamptons experience, East Hampton is a must-visit. Located on the East End of Long Island, it’s about a 2.5-hour drive from the city. When people mention “East Hampton,” they’re often referring to the village of East Hampton, which is one of several communities within the larger Town of East Hampton, which also includes Amagansett and Montauk to the east.
Founded in the 1600s, East Hampton is one of the oldest towns on Long Island. Today, it’s widely known for its luxury lifestyles and beachfront mansions, which are home to many prominent figures and celebrities. Yet it has also maintained its quaint charm and natural beauty. So whether you’re seeking gorgeous beaches, a bustling town center, upscale dining or rich history, East Hampton has something for everyone.
Where to Go
Beaches: East Hampton is known for its pristine, white sandy beaches – but be aware: permits are often required, and parking may be limited. Popular beaches include Main Beach, Georgica Beach and Two Mile Hollow Beach, all of which have lifeguards. Egypt Beach is another great option (but has no restrooms or lifeguards).
Shopping & Dining: Main Street is where you’ll find the majority of East Hampton’s best shops, boutiques and restaurants. Simply take a stroll through the village to explore, or consider using our East Hampton limo service to hop from spot to spot.
Hotels: East Hampton offers several great places to stay, from large luxury hotels to smaller boutique accommodations. Popular hotels include the 1770 House Inn (famous for its restaurant) and The Baker House 1650.

Getting to East Hampton
Private planes, charters & BLADE: If you’re flying private, definitely consider using East Hampton Airport (HTO), which is a small, 2-runway airport operated by the town.
Larger NYC airports: JFK, LaGuardia and Newark are the major NYC-area airports, which offer the widest variety of airlines and flight times. If you’re flying in, look for flights to JFK and then use a car service from JFK to East Hampton.
Long Island MacArthur Airport (ISP): ISP is technically the closest “major” airport to the Hamptons, but it’s small and flights are mostly limited to Southwest and Frontier. So even though it’s closer, it is usually faster to get to East Hampton by flying into a larger airport like JFK and then using our JFK to East Hampton car service.
Car service from NYC to East Hampton: If you’re coming from the city, the easiest and most comfortable way to get to the Hamptons and back is to use a local East Hampton to NYC car service.
