The formerly sleepy fishing village and artists’ enclave on the eastern tip of Long Island is now a mecca for surfers and NYC denizens looking for a lower-key alternative to the Hamptons—but a town known as the End hasn’t lost its authentic charm
The Surf Lodge It’s known for its after-hours scene, but we love it for brunch. Order the watermelon and lemon feta salad for the perfect combination of savory and sweet
Ditch Plains The go-to surf spot. Bring your board or your camera—or both, à la our in-house lensman Scott Rudin
The Crow’s Nest The restaurant at Sean MacPherson’s boho-inflected hotel is the perfect spot for a sunset cocktail. Arrive early: They don’t take reservations
