travel insider: plum sykes on the hamptons

Which three words sum up the Hamptons?

Suburban beach heaven.

Best time of day?
The mid-morning stroll along the sand after a breakfast of pancakes, bacon and maple syrup from the Princess Diner (32 Montauk Highway, Southampton).

Favourite hangout?
Drinking ice-cold, home-made lemonade at the Clam Shack on the Route 27 Highway is bliss. Or tea with interior designer Daniel Romualdez at his clifftop cottage in Montauk – heaven!

How many times have you been?
More times than I can remember.

Favourite holiday ritual?
Cycling down to the sea, abandoning my flip-flops at the water’s edge and diving straight in for a swim.

Ideal travelling companion?
A nanny for my kids!

What would you bring back?
An assortment of fabulous T-shirts bought at J Crew in East Hampton.

Late nights or early mornings?
Early mornings and early to bed – but only after watching the fireflies glittering on the lawn during dinner.
