Montauk is a relaxing and enjoyable destination. Stay at a motel right in town, or enoy a stay at one on the Old Montauk Highway. Both locations are in close proximity to the ocean. During the day, take advantage of all that Montauk's natural environment offers. Spend the day at the beach or grab a boogey board, surfboard, paddle-board, or kayak and spend it on the water. Then if you are looking to take a little break go to Nick's, a restaurant / bar in town right on the beach. They have music and food.
If it's cool or you are not a beach lover, rent a bike and enjoy the many bike trails available in Montauk, or go to Deep Hollow Ranch and join other horse lovers for a trail ride on the beach. The beach below the Montauk Lighthouse provides a wonderful opportunity for children of all ages to explore local marine life particularly when there are tidal pools to explore.

In late afternoon or early evening, drive about five minutes down the road and visit the harbor area.

Navy Road and Duryea's Dock both are great spots to catch the sunset! Montauk has BEAUTIFUL sunsets. Missing tomorow's weather-forecast with all the time spent in the outdoors? No worries! Just remember, "Red sky at night, sailor's delight; red sky in the morning sailor's take warning."
At night everyone has fires on the ocean beach. Make sure to secure a good spot around 7:30 or 8:00pm. or just join someone else's fire. Good way to meet people and have a good time. Take a walk around the town, and if you have kids don't forget to take them to the store "A little bit of everything." They will love it. The store has lots of fun little gadgets and sand toys.If you or your kids have a sweet tooth, there's a quaint candy shop in town, as well as, an ice cream spot with flavors of all kinds.
Don't leave Montauk without a visit to one of the oldest landmarks in the USA, the Montauk Lighthouse. On a clear day, the view from the top of the light makes the walk up the tower well worth it.
