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.
