This eastern tip of long island has long been a haven for fisherman and surfers alike, as well as being the perfect summer retreat for the city-weary.

This annual influx of tourists brings the village to life in the warmer months, but when the crowds head home at the end of the season, full-time Montauk residents can enjoy summer's peaceful afterglow.

Montauk is home to some of the finest beaches in the country, with great rolling breakers and miles of white gleaming sand.

In the heart of the village is South Edison, a popular beach that has a lifeguard on duty during the summer months and restaurants and stores in close proximity.

Surfers will enjoy the iconic Ditch Pains Beach two miles east of the village. It offers great breaks for surfer newbies and veterans alike.

Gin Beach by contrast is great for families with children, offering gentle waters and a great view of the boats coming in and out of the harbor.

Last but by no means least, Kirk Park Beach is the main town beach and stretches over 500 feet. Here you'll find free parking with park and picnic areas nearby.

Montauk restaurants

For such a small place, Montauk has more than its fair share of delicious eateries, many of which take full advantage of the waterfront.

Take the well-established local haunt 'Harvest on Fort Pond', which serves Tuscan-style cooking in an artistic spot with waterfront views. Or the ever-popular 'Gosman's Restaurant', which has a roof deck that looks out over the water.

'Swallow East' is yet another chic waterside eatery with a range of delicious small plates and fine cocktails.

By contrast, 'East by Northeast' offers a far eastern influenced menu featuring the freshest seafood and new world wines all served in a cool lounge with amazing sunset views.

The bohemian Crow's Nest Inn and Restaurant is both a great place to stay and eat. The restaurant overlooks Lake Montauk and has indoor and outdoor seating so you can enjoy dishes like Blue Crab tagliatelle under the stars.

The Hideaway is one of the best Mexican restaurants in the Hamptons. Hidden away inside a Marina, it's a great place to enjoy tacos, burritos and an excellent range of tequilas.

Finally, family friendly 'La Brisa' offers tacos, cocktails and sangria in a sophisticated setting in the heart of Montauk Village.

Surf Lodge is a highly sought-after destination for locals and travelers alike. On weekends it offers revelers an unparalleled lineup of concerts from emerging artists.

Montauk Brewing Company started out by delivering hand-filled kegs by bike to local bars. They've now grown to have their own tasting room where you can enjoy a variety of their locally produced beers. There's a patio area outside where you enjoy your brews in the summer sun.

The Grey Lady is a more under the radar party destination. By day it offers oysters and rose but by night it grows increasingly lively.

Those wanting a more laid back night should head for Gig Shack, which has a range of delicious drinks and lots of live music on weekends.
