Living in Montauk

Montauk is the final gem in the string of jewels that form the East End. Built on a peninsula with miles of pristine beachfront, life in Montauk revolves around the water. In fact, you’ll soon discover that fishing is more a lifestyle here than a sport.

Known affectionately as the “Last Resort,” this windswept eastern tip of Long Island has long been a warm-weather retreat for the city-weary. Visitors from all walks of life arrive each summer to unwind and have fun. This annual influx of tourists does much to bring the village to life, but when the crowds head home at the end of the season, full-time Montauk residents can enjoy summer’s peaceful afterglow.

Montauk real estate

As one of the East End’s most popular summer resorts, Montauk vacation rentals are in high demand. Montauk beach houses put you in the heart of the action, where you can choose from cozy cottages with romantic waterfront views, or more modern Montauk summer rentals with plenty of room for the whole family.

For those looking to put down permanent roots, you’ll find everything from comfortable contemporary homes to opulent estates and historic shingle-sided properties for sale in Montauk.

Montauk restaurants

With dozens of excellent eateries, you could easily try something new at every meal in Montauk. The region’s restaurants match its casual, beachy vibe, with no shortage of comforting, down-home joints, barbecue fare and laid-back seafood shacks.

The Montauk Bake Shoppe opens early for breakfast, so regulars can get their fill of fresh coffee and baked goods before heading out to their boats. Starting the day with the shop’s signature jelly croissant is a must for any visitor with a sweet tooth.

Seafood is its own food group in Montauk, and you can enjoy everything from a fried fish basket at a beach café to the finest fresh sushi at classy East by Northeast. If you’re an avid angler, you’ll also find restaurants that will cook your own catch.

If you’re looking for a diversity of dining experiences, it’s worth stopping by the annual A Taste of Montauk Festival for an exciting evening of gourmet cuisine, craft beer and regional wine. Hosted at the Montauk Yacht Club, you’ll be able to sample signature dishes from the best local chefs while overlooking the glistening waters of Lake Montauk.

Montauk nightlife

As the sun goes down, Montauk comes to life. You can start the evening off in style with a sunset cruise on Fort Pond Bay and return in time to catch a local band at your favorite waterfront bar.

Live music is the beating heart of Montauk’s buzzing nightlife scene. Whatever your tastes, you’ll find something to tap your toes to — from catchy beach bands and rocking karaoke to romantic Spanish guitar. While live music is a feature at any number of Montauk’s bars, the Gig Shack on Main Street has been a well-loved watering hole and music venue since 2010.

Montauk shopping

Montauk’s seasonally open boutiques cater to the vacation crowd, selling charming souvenirs, beach-ready fashion and Montauk mementos. The friendly Montauk Clothing Co. is an ideal stop, and you can pick up any essentials at the eclectic Montauk Corner Store.

Locals flock to the Thursday Farmer’s Market on the Village Green for freshly caught fish, baked goods and locally grown produce. Alternatively, you can find a variety of sweet treats downtown at the old-fashioned Fudge N’ Stuff candy shop. A local institution for more than 30 years, it features dozens of flavors of homemade fudge and chocolates.

Montauk attractions

The most fun in Montauk is had on the water. Visitors and locals alike enjoy endless opportunities for snorkeling, paddleboarding, kitesurfing, waterskiing and more. Peacefully explore the backwaters in a kayak or take a chartered boat out to the depths for world-class sportfishing.

While the water may be Montauk’s main draw, landlubbers needn’t fear. Montauk is home to more than 5,000 acres of protected landscape. Several parks, including the vast 775-acre Camp Hero State Park, offer miles of inland trails for hiking, biking and getting close to nature.

History enthusiasts can get glimpse into the area’s maritime past with a visit to the landmark Montauk Point Lighthouse. Now a museum run by the Montauk Historical Society, the inspiring views from its steep tower are well worth the visit.

Montauk beaches

Surrounded by water on three sides, Montauk boasts mile after mile of stunning beaches for swimming, sunbathing and watersports. The long breaks of Ditch Plains Beach make it the perfect place for surfers to catch a wave, while the gentle waters of Gin Beach are a particular favorite for kids.

To see the beach from another perspective, take a trip to the family-run Deep Hollow Ranch. Recognized as the oldest cattle ranch in the country, riders of all abilities can saddle up one of the ranch’s horses for an unforgettable ride along the pristine Montauk coastline.
