Westhampton Beach

Westhampton Landings Condominium is located within the Incorporated Village of Westhampton Beach.  There are several other communities comprising the Greater Westhampton area:  the Incorporated Village of Quogue, the Village of Westhampton Dunes, and the unincorporated hamlets of Hampton Bays, Hampton West Estates, Westhampton, Remsenburg and Speonk.  The Landings is situated on the scenic south shore of Long Island, about 80 miles east of Midtown New York, convenient to reach by many modes of transportation.

Within walking distance, the Village of Westhampton Beach offers a top-notch school system, super-markets, sophisticated shopping, trendy boutiques, numerous restaurants to satisfy any palate, a twin first-run movie theater, the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center for entertainment, and some of the most beautiful ocean beaches anywhere. Rogers Pavilion, one of the local beaches, is regularly noted as one of the top 15 beaches in the world! Additionally, the town marina, within walking distance to town, affords boaters an ideal location to tie up for the weekend or for the season. St. Mark’s Episcopalian Church, Hampton Synagogue, Beach Methodist, Immaculate Conception Catholic Church and the Westhampton Presbyterian Church are some of the local areas of worship.

Walking, biking or taking a casual ride through the tree lined streets of the Village on Oneck, Beach Road or Seafield offers glimpses of wealth and grandeur demonstrated by very individualistic residences, opulent mansions paired with exquisite, manicured landscaping. A trip down Dune Road reveals some of the world famous contemporary residential architecture.

Tourism is still a major factor in the area’s economy, but in recent years, more and more of the seasonal visitors have become year ’round residents, so that the celebrated Hamptons quality of life is being enjoyed by more and more greater Westhampton area people every year.
