2013 No. 1: Main Beach in East Hampton, N.Y., on Long Island
Dr. Beach has this to say about the beach: "Main Beach is located in East Hampton on eastern Long Island, New York. This idyllic beach is frequented by the rich and famous who so highly regard their beach that Leatherman has seen even super models picking up litter washed ashore from the sea. This beach was heavily eroded by Super Storm Sandy and subsequent winter storms, yet it has largely recovered. The proud pavilion at Main Beach was little affected because it was set back several hundred feet from the water¿s edge. A great team of lifeguards stands watch, making this a very safe beach for bathing and swimming."
