The Sunset Beach Hotel and restaurant adds a jolt of high-voltage Riviera glamour to Shelter Island. I am too geriatric to deal with the weekend crowds but often make midweek lunch dates with my Shelter pals.
Always a favorite! This place is truly iconic. I loved it the first year it opened, and I love it just as much now. It’s a little touch of the south of France in the Hamptons and is always lively and chic and the atmosphere is just unbeatable. It makes me so happy to go there. And their gift shop is the best: Think amazing sunglasses, great swimwear, beach towels, and bags—always with a fresh, of-the-moment edit.
Sunset Beach is André Balazs' beachside hotel and restaurant nestled on the sands of Shelter Island on the eastern end of Long Island, New York.
