Is Westhampton considered the Hamptons?

The Hamptons are technically made up of only two townships: The Town of Southampton and the Town of East Hampton. However, each of those townships includes smaller villages and hamlets with their own zip codes, school districts, and personalities.

Southampton Town also includes the hamlets of Eastport, Speonk, and Remsenburg, but these towns are not usually considered to be part of the Hamptons.


There are a lot of social nuances in the Hamptons. To most locals, “The Hamptons” begins at Southampton and ends at Montauk. Which is an unpopular opinion to those who live in Westhampton and would like to included under this umbrella. When if I ever have a client looking to purchase a home on the East End, wants to enjoy the best ocean spots, but doesn’t care to be around the glitz, I find Westhampton and Quogue to be the absolute best.
