The tip of long island is beautiful. They let you walk around the boulders in front of the lighthouse which is great. However, we visited on a Saturday in January and the lighthouse was closed. Still would say it is a "must see" location

OMG - you have to see the light house decorated at Christmas time. It's so cool and VERY DARK when you get there. Be careful going back .there are a lot of deers. The LIGHT HOUSE is Amazing.

Great way to spend some time with the kids while the fish are not biting. Make sure you bring them all the way up

I drove all the way out to the Hamptons on a visit to Smithtown and they really do turn back to the locals after the Summer. I ate lunch with people who were mostly in construction, farming and fishing. Montauk is super quiet this time...More

Cold rainy windy day on which we took a drive out to Montauk from Northport with our American relative acting as tour guide. Loved the lighthouse - had its Christmas lights on too! Saw seals in the sea hanging with the brave surfers.

Gorgeous setting and views. Interesting museum on site that gives history of the Montauk lighthouse and of Long Island. $11/person for admission.

Very pretty lighthouse but unfortunately all the grounds are closed for the winter. It would have been nice to have been able to walk around the grounds of the lighthouse even if the light house itself was closed for the winter.

This is a beautiful place and a MUST SEE place in Montauk and the Hamptons. Watch out for opening hours, since it is rather restricted. Late afternoon is it usually closed. Great views, and great ocean view. Great for photos.
