If you traveled this far, you need to go see the lighthouse. Great views. $8 to park, $10 a person to see the museum and climb the tower. There's a small grill that serves burgers, sandwiches, and fries.

Awesome views and great scenic drive out. If you can handle some height it's definitely worth the climb to the top. Also a ton of great places to eat in the area.

In 1973 my cousins lived in one of the apartments in the lighthouse while stationed there in the Coast Guard. Their first child was christened there. Now there is not much changed. Beautiful stop to visit.

Touring Long Island for a few days it made sense to go to the furthest point in the south and visit this iconic lighthouse. And being there it sort of made sense to pay the $11 to climb the 137 steps to the top, which...More

A Definite Must place to visit while in Montauk. The 135 steps to the top is good and the views from the park is amazing.
