You can walk all along the underside of the lighthouse - and if you like to fish, this is some of the BEST surf casting. But whether you go to fish or just to watch the ocean with one of the prettiest lighthouses in the USA, this is a must see/do.

Overrated, you have to pay for the parking lot. Better go there by bicycle. The sunset is not as nice as the Sunrise.

The lighthouse has a great museum and two wonderful videos. Go down to the basement if you want to see Montauk's lighthouse history on film, or if you need a break from the sun, or shelter from the rain. The climb to the top is not too challenging and the views of course are 360 degrees. They light the lighthouse... More

Nice place, plenty of parking but a bit expensive as not only was there a per person entrance charge but also a parking charge

I love visiting the lighthouse. There's so much to do. You can climb up to the top, around the base on the rocks or walk along the beach and see the surf casters.

Well maintained lighthouse at the very tip of Long Island. Interesting history and beautiful views. Except for the stairs to the top, its a fine place for those who aren't fully mobile. Plenty of paved pathways.
