“Love theLighthouse view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2012

Great place inside the park but must be privately owned.....much too pricey and we did not go inside. Best view is from the rocky path to the left as you enter the general area or the parking lots and it's all free. The cove next to the lighthouse is the perfect place for children to sea sea birds and marvel at the variety of pebbles and stones....and it's free!

A must see historical site - great view. Go back to East Hampton to eat. Everything in Montauk is for tourists.

“Gorgeous Winter Location”

Didn't go inside as the lighthouse was closed, but a brilliant spot for walks and birdwatching. Tremendously scenic

“Historial Montauk Lighthouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

To fully appreciate this site, walk around the back onto the rocks. The view of the ocean spectacular. For the more adventurous, park in Camp Hero, and walk the bluffs to the trails leading to the lighthouse beach. Then up the giant rocks behind the light house. Also don't miss the tour inside. Incredible views. The walk is our family ritual on Christmas Day. A memorable experience!
