Family of 4 with teenage daughters staying 5 days in Glen Cove (Sat to Wed) as it best fits our budget. We'll have a car & do day trips from here. We'll a beach closer to Glen Cove but like to get to the Hamptons area for some beach time, realize the issue with permits/availability wondering how far out to drive to get reasonable access to a beach for. Like to visit a few villages either on different days or same, Montauk is a must & that drive will be about 2 hours. Just wondering how best to plan the days and minimize the back forth as best as possible. Any assistance would be appreciated.
