Southampton Beaches will Operate Under Phased in Plans this Summer


In an effort to prevent the spread of coronavirus, the Town of Southampton will implement a phased reopening and staffing of beaches this summer.  Beginning May 23rd.  Three beaches - Ponquogue, Sagg Main and Long Beach - will operate on weekends. They will be staffed with lifeguards and beach attendants.  Restrooms will be open and concessions will operate as takeout only. The phased reopening of our beaches is designed to assure greater safety of our beach goers and our staff.   

Permits are required at all beaches and access roads beginning May23rd. Residential and non-residential permits will be sold at those three beach locations on weekends beginning May 23rd. Beach permits applications are available on line at the Town website.  Existing 2019 beach permits are valid through June 30th.  No daily permits will be sold until further notice.

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, no picnic tables or benches will be available at this time and we ask that beach goers respect the CDC social distance guidelines of 6 feet. All patrons are expected to wear facial coverings and footwear on boardwalks and pavilions and in restrooms, and when within 6 feet of others.  There should be no congregating in groups on the beach or pavilion areas, and no contact sports or sharing of sport equipment.

Beach operations will be assessed weekly with the hope to staff more beaches on weekends later  in June and to operate seven days a week in July. 

 This phased in plan is subject to change as conditions warrant.
