Something for everyone. Enjoy.

A wonderful place to explore the beach and enjoy watching the fishing boats hard at work. Don't miss the climb to the top of the lighthouse for the view.

Yes, you have to pay to park, but only until 4pm. After that, you can park for free. The views are breathtaking. The ocean in all its glory. The nature walk is a must here. Put your walking shoes on and enjoy the park. The lighthouse is magnificent, but a separate fee for entering.

My husband and I visited Montauk Point on Labor Day weekend (2015). We got there pretty early around 10 and it was not that crowded. You have to pay $8 for parking and then again to get into the lighthouse. The area is very pretty and the beach and bluffs were picturesque. The climb to the top of the lighthouse... More

When you go to Montauk ... the classic bumper sticker/magnet boldly states "MTK The End". But when you go the the lighthouse ... you quickly think what a fantastic view of the Atlantic Ocean... and you learn through its history that's it's the first lighthouse commissioned by President Washington of the newly formed 'United States' hence "the beginning"!

nice place, beautiful view if you are a into taking photos. but I found the ticket to go inside the lighthouse kind of a bit expensive. I guess they should reconsider that.

Few Long Islanders make it out this far to its eastern tip. It is one of the most remote light houses, a shame that an admission fee is charged. Approaching Long Island from the north or east or Block Island Sound this landmark always has special significance as it stands strong and majestically.

You can start at the state run restaurant and walk along the rocks along the ocean and watch surfers, fishermen as you walk along the flat jetty. Easy to walk and a nice view of lighthouse.

It is a very pretty end of New York but needing to pay to park is asking too much. I have seen as nice in Maine without feeling fleeced.

Saw the Montauk lighthouse. The views are magnificent. Just an incredibly beautiful experience. We drove around it, and then went to Hither Hills, as well as some other nearby beaches.
