Prime Fishing Destination in the Hamptons

Hampton Bays

Commercial and recreational fishing dominate the scene in Hampton Bays, a year-round community, and it's second only to Montauk as New York state's busiest fishing port. And while the nightlife scene has been toned down in recent years, it still has several well-attended bars and hotspots.

What to Expect

Historic fishing village with vibrant nightlife and year-round community

Hampton Bays is still home to many commercial fishermen. Their fishing trawlers and charter boats traverse Shinnecock Canal daily, bringing in fresh catch and taking weekenders out for morning fishing excursions. Although a large year-round working-class community resides here, Hampton Bays is also home to a vibrant summer community and a bustling downtown scene.

Condos, fishermen's cottages and shingle-style houses

Year-round and summer residents alike can take advantage of some of the best-priced housing options in the Hamptons. Condominiums start around $200,000 and single-family homes around $350,000. Ranches and shingle-style houses near town or the water's edge can easily go for upwards of $600,000. For true waterfront properties, buyers should expect to pay over $1 million.
