This whole area is beautiful, and the lighthouse is just one of the many stops to make along the way. The beach/bay was beautiful. Great beach combing for sure. The weather was cool with intermittent rain, but we forged on! Their bathrooms are a bonus....More

Just so Beautiful and peaceful this time of year! Must go and See ! Be really careful driving to “The Point” lots of Deer on side of Road. Stop by Gurney’s to warm up. Love Montauk in the Winter.

I took my family to see the lighting of the holiday lights on the lighthouse. It was certainly something to see! The event wasn't all that well organized. However, considering that it was free with an option for donation, I wasn't disappointed. The band playing...More

Driving up and seeing Montauk Lighthouse perched up on the hill is breathtaking ! Seeing only by water a few times it was well worth the ride out to see it. There was no charge for parking and a charge to go onto the Lighthouse...More

Worth the visit. Great views and at the very tip of Long Island. You can climb to the top of the lighthouse if you wish.

What an awesome experience! The power of the 50 mph wind and the raging 17 ft Seas. Unfortunately the light house was closed. I would have loved to have that view. Need to return in blue sky weather.

Unfortunately when we went it was closed. The closest we could get was to the closed sign. We were excited to see the actual lighthouse but we think it was closed since the weather was “not permitting”. We recommend you double check even if the...More

A gorgeous view of the water but even in the off season, the $8 to park and the $11 to walk up the lighthouse wasn't worth it. Look at it from afar and enjoy the rest of the views from the scenic overlook.
