The History

Renowned as part of the Hamptons, the area known today as Westhampton, Westhampton Beach, Quiogue, and Westhampton Dunes was named Ketchabonack by the Algonquin tribes who lived in the area when the English sheepherders arrived in the 1660s. A land of breathtakingly beautiful beaches and bays situated on the south shore of Long Island, just 65 miles east of New York City, Westhampton has evolved from an agricultural and fishing village to a summer vacation resort to a year-round oceanfront community. Where Fortune 500 chief executive officers and celebrities have lived quietly amid locals. Westhampton Beach depicts how an area blessed with uncommon physical beauty has managed to remain unspoiled.
