Day 1: Arrive and shop
Settle in to your accommodation and after a quick visit to the beach head to Southampton. Jack Wills is flying the British flag here and on the other side of the street check Sun Barths for more British brands for the boys - Orlebar Brown and Sunspel.  Top up on Hamptons holiday gear in Roberta Roller Rabbit then head to The Golden Pear for a snack. For more shopping East Hampton has a brilliant main street with beautiful boutiques as well as J Crew and Malia Mills. End the day with a sunset walk along Sag Main Beach or Coopers Beach and a casual dinner at Barristers in Southampton.
Great kids shopping upstairs at J Crew
Parking at the beach is tricky during the day but easy for after 5pm for sunset walks easily the coolest way to get to the Hamptons is the Standard sea plane from New York.

Day 2: Yoga and cycling
Start the day off with yoga at Yoga Shanti in Sag Harbour. Walk to Provisions for coffee and buy your snacks/picnic lunch. Rent a bicycle on Main street and head out of Sag following signs to Shelter Island Ferry. Do a tour of the beautiful Shelter Island aiming for Crescent Beach. Swim then lunch at Sunset Hotel on the beach. Cycle back to Sag Harbour and enjoy a well-earned dinner at Sen or Phao.
Tips: Book early at Yoga Shanti and look for classes with Coleen or Rodney.
Eat on the upper deck at Sunset Hotel

Day 3: Workout and Surf
Book an early class at the Tracy Anderson pop up studio in Water Mill. Grab a coffee at The Hampton Coffee Co. next door and start on the drive to Montauk. In Montauk rent a surfboard and continue to Ditch Plains for the best waves in the Hamptons. Grab lunch at Ditch Witch then surf more or go open water swimming. Evening drinks at the uber-cool Surf Lodge with live music from 7pm. Then dinner at the romantic Crows Nest before heading home.
Dress up for the Surf Lodge and get there early - young crowd with Ibiza vibe.
If planning some open water swimming check with the lifeguards about jelly fish. White 'moon' jellyfish are OK to swim with (although it feels a bit weird) but red ones will sting.
Walk down to the water at The Crows Nest where there is an open fire, loungers and marshmallows to roast.

Day 4:
Get up late. Drive back to NY stretched, worked out, rinsed, bronzed and sated.
