The Incorporated Village of Westhampton Beach is an incorporated village on the southeast coast of Long Island. Administratively it is in the town of Southampton, Suffolk County, New York, United States. As of the 2010 census, the village population was 1,721.HistoryThe village of Westhampton Beach was incorporated in 1928. In 1938, almost all summer homes on its barrier beach were obliterated by a hurricane resulting in twenty-nine local deaths.Like most of the shoreline of southern Long Island, the beach at Westhampton Beach was eroding shoreward, and in the 1960s this became a political issue. The project to protect the beaches in the area from further erosion was begun by the Army Corp of Engineers in 1966, but was only partially completed, due primarily to the failure of supporting funds from the state and local government. In addition the project design was seriously flawed. As a result, while up-current the beaches actually grew, in Westhampton Beach there was increased erosion at the beaches, and during the late 1970s and through the 1980s beach homes were washed away with every severe storm (nor'easter) that hit the coast. It was only after the nor'easter of November 1992 destroyed over eighty homes, that the Army Corp of Engineers began renewed repair efforts. In the mid-1990s, fifteen historic houses were relocated by the Army Corps of Engineers. The homes were moved off the beach and out of harm's way, at least for a while, but the beach is still eroding and addition damage is incurred with every storm. Additional work was required after Hurricane Sandy in 2012.Westhampton Beach is in Hamptons.
