Dr. Beach Names America's Best Beach 2013:
Main Beach in East Hampton, New York
 
                                              
 
 
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.  {See The Press Release}

Rip Currents & Safety (Watch Video Below)
 
 
RIP CURRENTS are powerful currents of water moving away from the shore, capable of sweeping even the strongest swimmers out to sea and are often called "killer currents" for a good reason.  Although estimates vary, rip currents are responsible for approximately 150 deaths every year in the US and likely thousands worldwide.  Through raising awareness and increasing understanding, we seek to dramatically reduce the number of fatalities from this lurking danger.  For more information about rip currents and beach safety, please visit www.ripcurrents.com and www.healthybeaches.org
