The Hamptons has long been known as a luxurious getaway for New York’s most affluent. While it’s true the area is filled with wealthy and famous people, there is a less ostentatious side that’s worth a visit. Montauk is located at the most eastern point of Long Island’s South Fork. This charming beach town is one of the most pristine of all the east end towns. This rugged surfers’ paradise with a chilled-out vibe is nature at its best. Check out several of the state parks with hiking trails that take you along the stunning coastline, then through the dense forests. Visit the Montauk Point Lighthouse, the oldest operating lighthouse in New York and a great place for seal-watching. If you want to catch some waves, head to Ditch Plains for some fun in the sun. End the day at Navy Beach for Montauk’s finest seafood and custom cocktails.
