The only place to eat is the bakery. Has a hechsher but look into it first. The beach is beautiful and im sure you can find an empty stretch.
Where in the hamptons will you be?

Chabad might have minyanim. Its 1/2 hour away thou. Dont know if theres a boardwalk. There's is none on the sagaponak beach.
One Carvel also might be kosher. The hamptons where designed to keep away tourists so there is not much public entertainment like arcades.

 I think the 5000 dollar rent a night for a house keeps most people away. ;D  Have you ever been to Shutter island? Is it something worth seeing?

Never ben there. I usualy go up just for shabbos so I dont have much time to go anywhere like a tourist.
Yes, it prices people out. Since I dont own a house there I dont really know everything thats there. I just relax most of the time. Its beautiful out there! And traffic within the main parts where there are stores gets really bad sometimes.

I guess anybody that can afford the Hamptons is not on DDF  :(   thanks for the info but the fact that the thread is this small is interesting. The end of Long island has some cool places Hamptons, Montauk, Shelter island and the likes.

. Thread is relatively new and I created it. There are not many religious people the at all. I happen to know someone there so thats why I go. But usually the way it works is people make dinners partys bbqs and get together and hang out. So you really need to be with someone who lives there to find places to go and things to do.

Id say a level below modox. Most people are irreligious but there are some modox or in between. I know a few people who are upper modox and rent out because they dont like the shul.
And a shabbos mike?! Is that even modox?

There's Chabad in West Hampton, South Hampton, watermill and east Hampton.

Watermill is summer only. I believe the rest are year-long, I know for certain east is.

Shabbos Mike works without electric. ..

Yes, 50 percent of shul are not Shomer Shabbos. However, they all come to shul  and spend there most of the day. If not for this Shul they'd be at the beach bbq etc. Also, this Shul has a daily Minyan Sharchris Mincha Maariv. ..

I'm Orthodox - but I give them credit and hopefully one day they will become even closer to Hashem.

Not arguing with that.
I guess they need to craft the shul to fit to those who wouldn't come if they didnt.

Yes, Montauk is awesome! I've been going every year since I was a kid. More of a laid-back vibe. I really love the Hither Hills campground if you want to "rough it" on the beach.

I agree with Arianna that Montauk is very chill and has a nice community feel.  Though it seems to be attracting more and more 18-24 crowd hitting the bars and overrunning certain areas on the weekends.

My wife and I go out for a few weeks every year.  We are not big beach goers but do enjoy walking through towns and sitting at an outdoor cafe and people watching. Our favorites for that are Sag Harbor (nice town, less sleepy than it used to be but still my fave), East Hampton (largest town, more upscale, mobbed on the weekends) and Montauk.
