Year-round appeal in Westhampton Beach

Summer is the time to see-and-be-seen in the Hamptons and there’s little denying the appeal of kicking back in an oceanfront Westhampton Beach vacation rental when the sun is shining. If celebrity spotting is not on your bucket list, though, the off-season between September and May offers the perfect opportunity to enjoy a little downtime while avoiding the summer crowds. Swap time at the beach for an afternoon splashing about in the pool, indulge in a few glasses of your favorite tipple on the Hamptons wine trail or trawl the boutiques in nearby Southampton for flash new additions to your wardrobe.
