East Hampton Village's nonresident beach permits for the 2020 summer season will go on sale on Saturday. The permits, 3,100 of which will be available, provide parking access to the village’s five ocean beaches: Main, Georgica, Two Mile Hollow, Egypt, and Wiborg.
They will be sold on a first-come-first-served basis and cost $400 per vehicle. In recent years, they have sold out by mid-March.
They can be purchased on the village's website, at Village Hall on weekdays between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., and by mail (addressed attention to Sue Dayton).
The permits must be displayed on vehicles parked at village beaches between May 15 and Sept. 15.
To obtain a permit, applicants must provide a valid vehicle registration, a check for the fee payable to the Village of East Hampton (including the signatory's telephone number), a copy of a driver's license, and, for those purchasing by mail, a self-addressed stamped envelope.
Those who will be renting a car must provide a copy of a driver's license with a notation that they will have a rental car. A voided permit will be issued, which the driver will need to take to Village Hall along with a car rental contract to receive a valid permit.
For those without a seasonal parking permit, daily permits for Main and Two Mile Hollow Beaches will be available during the summer season. They will cost $30 per day and can be purchased at the entrance to the Main Beach parking lot or the Main Beach pavilion. Daily parking permits will be available every day unless the lots are full, but will be limited on weekends and holidays to 60 permits at Main Beach and 40 at Two Mile Hollow.
