Montauk Point

Best place to see Montauk. Wear you hiking boots. Many trails to wonder. In the summer it is crowded .

Montauk Point Lighthouse is located at the furthest point of Long Island towards East. From the lighthouse surroundings, we found stunning views of the ocean - all blue! There are few sitting arrangements faced to the ocean. The place is very scenic and relaxing. Down the shore, the little beach is covered by lots of stones. About the Lighthouse -... More

A must see if you go to Montauk. There is a lot of history to the place. The view from the top is beautiful.

Montauk Point Lighthouse is a must do attraction if you get that far east on Long Island. The views are amazing at ground level, and far more magnificent if you take the climb to enjoy the vistas from the top of the lighthouse (do it, if only once ... well worth it). My kids love running around free spirited on... More

So beautiful. A great view and must-see place in Montauk. Parking is a little expensive but worth it. Climb to the top of the lighthouse for even better views.

This is a well preserved lighthouse with a museum. You can walk to the top of the lighthouse but even if you don't you will get great views from the grounds surrounding the lighthouse. Prepare to pay $8 to park and then $10 per person to get on the lighthouse grounds which includes the museum and a climb to the... More

Great museum and lovely views. At $8 for parking and $20 to visit the lighthouse its a bit pricey, but how often can you say you've been to the end of the world.

A great lighthouse with many historical items on display. The steps to the lighthouse tower are steep and not for everyone, but there are many wonderful artifacts to view in the museum.

8 dollar parking - no other options, then you have to pay to get anywhere near the lighthouse. Family of 4 overall close to 40 bucks just to see this thing - thanks but no thanks.
