We went to Montauk Point Lighthouse because my cousin who is visiting wanted to take a picture. She wanted a sunset with the lighthouse in the background. She was able to take the picture (I didn't) and the kids had fun just walking around.

Every year, we make a trip from Seaford, LI to this lighthouse. You cannot go outside once you climb up, which is disappointing. If you want a gorgeous view from up high, I'd do the Fire Island Lighthouse instead. But the exploring, scenery & rock climbing were faves of the kids, from youngsters into teenagers, and hopefully beyond!

A good attraction which was very interesting to see. Set in a state park so good walks around the site as well as the beech. Great views from the top of the lighthouse and good exercise climbing to the top!

This is actually a smaller lighthouse compared to others and they dont let you walk around the top like you can in NC. However, the views are incredible and they have a museum chalked full of historic information that I found pretty interesting. Def a must see!

I've always wanted to go to the end of Long Island (or at least the end 27) and it was definitely worth the drive, granted it did take two hours but it was all worth it at the end. You will hit some traffic midway due to pedestrian crosswalk but once you pass all of that, there are several overpass... More

I will start by saying I am a New Yorker, no stranger to the Hamptons and fully accept the expense to enjoy my time out here in Montauk. However, I am very disappointed and feel taken advantage of when I have to spend nearly $60 to visit the Montauk Lighthouse. I have not been here in probably 6 years to... More

It is a great to place to a quick visit! There's a nice small museum with some stuff from the lighthouse and it's history! Climb the stairs to see a beautiful view of the ocean.

It was a really long, and pretty boring drive - took us over 4 hours from our starting point in western Nassau County. Besides there being tons of traffic and no alternate routes, it was just so long - especially knowing we would have to make the same trip in reverse. We persevered to reach the eastern most point on... More

Nice views. Atsome $28 to see a lighthouse seems like a lot. The museum is underwhelming.Just go to the beach instead.

The drive there can be a little tiresome as it is one lane each way for quite a bit of the drive..and alot of summer traffic etc but when you finally get there you have to pay to park and it does not include entrance to the lighthouse..not even just to walk up to it. We decided since we had... More
