The Village of North Haven is located in the Town of Southampton, in Suffolk County, on the eastern end of Long Island, in an area known as “the Hamptons”, in the State of New York. 

The Village is a peninsula, essentially surrounded by water.  North Haven can be accessed from the east by the LCpl Jordan Haerter Veterans Memorial Bridge from the Village of Sag Harbor, by a causeway from the south leading from the community of Noyac and passing by Edward Foster Memorial “Long Beach”, or from the north by ferry operated by the Shelter Island South Ferry Company.   

The community is residential with only two commercial business – the Peerless Marine Center and the South Ferry.   Many of the residential neighborhoods are comprised of private homeowner associations.   As might be expected, there are many waterfront properties.   The waterbodies surrounding North Haven are Noyac Bay to the west, Shelter Island Sound to the north and east and Sag Harbor Cove to the south.    Depending on one’s vantage point, views from North Haven can be of Shelter Island, the Nature Conservancy’s Mashomuck Preserve on Shelter Island, Sag Harbor, the Bay Point community, Barcelona Point, Gardner’s Bay, East Hampton, Jessup’s Neck, Southold, and points beyond on the North Fork of Long Island.    Large portions of North Haven remain undeveloped through permanent preservation of land.  Land preservation remains an evergreen goal of the Village Trustees to maintain the rural nature of the Village.

Public access points to the water are at the end of Sunset Beach Road and at Fahy’s Road.   North Haven residents may also obtain seasonal beach permits for a fee at Southampton beaches.  The closest beaches are at Edward Foster Memorial Beach at Long Beach or Sagg Main Beach in Sagaponack.    There are also a limited number of seasonal mooring permits available for North Haven residents to secure watercraft in the mooring field on the North Haven side of Sag Harbor.
