    Mesmerized by Montauk

    Montauk has often humorously been called “The Last Resort” due to its singular location at the very tip of Long Island. When travelers arrive, however, they quickly discover that this area offers enough stores, sights, and scenery to keep them coming back time and again. With 6 state parks in its vicinity, as well as crystalline waters and miles of sandy beaches, the town’s idyllic setting is perfect for anything from family vacations to college getaways. A range of Montauk vacation rentals, from beachfront cottages to central condos, are standing by, ready for you to start your vacation on just the right note.

    Shop around in Montauk

    The Montauk way of life has always been about mixing laid-back tranquility and refined glamour, so it’s the perfect place to treat yourself to a little pampering. Indulge in some retail therapy with stores designed to sell the Montauk lifestyle. You’ll find quirky trinkets, one-of-a-kind jewelry, and funky fashions in boutiques throughout the city. You can also wind down with some spa pampering; halotherapy is a particular specialty in the region. This salt therapy is great for stress relief and relaxation, while Reiki and massages are just what you need to unwind in style.

    Montauk Point Lighthouse

    Construction on the Montauk Point Lighthouse was completed in 1796, making it New York’s oldest lighthouse and the 4th oldest active model in America. The Montauk Lighthouse Museum displays the congressional authorization for its construction, signed by Thomas Jefferson, as well as the land-purchase agreement signed by George Washington in 1792. The museum is located in the preserved 1860 keeper’s house and also houses a number of other artifacts and documents. The nearby E. Virgil and Elaine Wingate Conway Visitor Center has an open-air patio that offers stellar views over the bay.

    Montauk's perennial popularity

    Summer is the most popular period to visit Long Island and is also the hardest time to find Montauk vacation rentals. Temperatures average in the high 70s during the day, with water temperatures much the same, and southwesterly winds keeping things comfortable. The Atlantic Ocean has a moderating effect on the climate, so spring starts late and fall lasts through November. This makes these shoulder months an appealing time to snap up Montauk vacation rentals and make the most of smaller crowds and better availability. You can also book for the mild winter months if a festive break is more to your taste.

    Montauk, naturally

    Spread over 99 acres, Shadmoor State Park is located a quarter of a mile from Montauk Village. The reservation is home to 2,400 feet of beach, as well as bluffs, freshwater wetlands, and hiking trails. A number of elevated platforms also dot the area, providing the perfect vantage points for admiring the coast or bird-watching. Black-cherry trees are also common, as well as clusters of endangered sand-plain gerardia plants. Dogs are allowed on leashes; if you’ve taken advantage of one of the many nearby pet-friendly Montauk vacation rentals then this is the best spot to walk them.
