This Lighthouse has been kept in great condition, I know they have done lots of work and spent lots of money in doing so. Love it!

Not many places on the planet can be accurately described as 'The End'... Montauk Lighthouse is one of them. I've been here 20 times or more over the years, and it never disappoints. Geology lessons, atmospheric insight, historical data (commissioned by Pres. George Washington), tidal awareness, the ocean... and then there's the lighthouse itself...Go! You'll find something stimulating.

This park is so beautiful at anytime of the year. Sunrise is stunning. It was very cold on the day of our visit (3deg F) so we did not stay long - still a stunning view.

We biked to the lighthouse from Hither Hills Campground. Rolling hills; road bike. We did a short walk around the lighthouse and enjoyed a visit to the lighthouse and gift shop. We stopped at two parks on the way there and return for a short walk and snack break. Recommend a stop here if you are in the area.

Montauk is amazing, and if you're bored, the lighthouse is a nice little trip. Either way, Montauk is heavenly!

Took a couple hours to make the trek out to the lighthouse, but worth it. Super pretty views, small gift shop, tons of parking, good strolling area for people. There's plenty of small towns around for shopping and sightseeing.

Hired a airport car service Long Island for travel from LaGuardia airport to Montauk Light House. The car service was pre-arranged through online booking. Me and my family was well accommodated in the car. The chauffeur was proved as excellent tour guide though and he took us straight to the Montauk Point Light House. We spend the whole day there...

I went to see the lighthouse in the snow and even though it was closed, it looked magical. The little restaurant off to the side was still open for coffee, etc and the majestic view made the extra miles worth it. In August, we took our wedding party to visit the lighthouse and walk through the museum and everyone had... More

Even though I visited the lighthouse on winter, while it was snowing,I can say that is worth the trip to the end of the island.

I was out on Long Island for work for a month and decided to take a day off and drive out to Montauk and explore the eastern tip of the island. I was disappointed to find that the lighthouse charges for parking and again for access. While I understand the need for maintenance and programs, I found the price to... More
