"Fishing, Surfing, Water Sports"

Montauk Tourism

Montauk is located to the East of Hamptons, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. It is approximately 120 miles away from the city equivalent to a three hour drive. Montauk offers lots of activities throughout the weekend, like fishing, surfing, water sports or pure relaxation for families as well as individuals. The favourite spot among people is Ditch plains along the coast which is a 2-mile long road decked with hiking trails and walks. Montauk Lighthouse, Shadmoor State Park and Camp hero State Park are favourite sites for exploring old military bunkers and stone homes. 

However, the Montauk beach remains its prime attraction. There are a lot of surfing and water sports around the coast along with famous restaurants such as Blue Stone Lane and Primavera. All these places offer spectacular views of the ocean at sunset and an amazing ambience for food, beer and drinks. People usually start arriving from Friday evenings and stay till Sunday afternoon.   

  • Montauk is quite crowded during summer weekends, but that is the best time to visit.
  • Earlier, it used to be a quiet fishing town, but it has recently become an expensive and luxurious getaway. 
  • Private vehicle owners have to be cautious of the limited parking options, so it is best to visit the place by train or Hampton buses.
