Worth the climb.

It's not just a Light House. It is a Museum as well. It was very interesting to see the way they captured how it was to live there in the past. Bring comfortable shoes, those... read more

It's $8 to park and then an additional $10 per person for admission. A total waste if you ask me. The drive up is pretty, but then just keep circling around and go back into town. There are many other nice things to do in Montauk, although each time I go out there I get the sense that they like... More

The view was spectacular! I loved the color and clarity of the water. The Lighthouse was really interesting too. A great stop to plan when you're in the area.

This is a nice lighthouse with a beautiful view but most don't charge $8.00 to park and then $10.00 more per person for entry. I realize there are expenses but I think that is over the top. The drive to it is nice but takes some time. If you have to go, try later in the day when parking fares... More

From the minute you buy your tickets....the woman (senior citizen) at the counter was rude and nasty! Great first impression!!!! Then you get into the lighthouse and another senior citizen woman was yelling at my family (three children) because they were not staying straight on the line....mind you we are in a lighthouse with museum artifacts and things to read...

I have been many times. I recently went and they have the new playground which is tons of fun! The hike around the light house on the rocks is really cool. Last year I went for my birthday and we made messages in a bottle and through them off

Could be excellent if they didn't charge to park. Nice photo opportunity and beautiful views. I think the view is better in the other lot. One price gets you into both.
