Main Beach in East Hampton is so popular that non-resident season passes, first available each February, sell out by April according to assistant manager Rose Lawler. With a lively pavilion, refreshments and beach gear sold at the Chowder Bowl , volleyball nets, picnic tables, and well-kept facilities, it's easy to see why. Day passes are sold during the week for $25, so the beach is a popular spot for tourists.
