Some call Montauk "The End" and some call it "The Beginning". Either way, its beauty becomes apparent as you leave Amagansett and head down the highway. After what we call "the stretch", Montauk begins to show you why it is different from the rest of Long Island. The landscape starts to become much more scenic, particularly at the elevated spots, which are scattered throughout the area. That's where you'll get your first glimpse of the ocean and our beaches.


A Beautiful Montauk Sunset

During the summer and fall months, those beaches will be filled with surfers, sun bathers, swimmers, surf fishermen, spear fishermen and walkers. These are all beautiful times in the warm summer air. However, Montauk's season really begins well before the summer starts...just before the official start of Spring.

Montauk St. Patricks day Parade   March 19, 2006 12:30 pm
The end of March holds an amazing event in Montauk, the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade (or St. Patty's Day Parade, whichever you choose). This parade is held the weekend AFTER the New York City parade. Now, you might think this is some small town event, but I'm here let you definately, is not. Some estimate more that 50,000 people show up for this event. In other words, the town increases in size more than 10 fold! The party usually starts on the Friday before the parade with the Grand Marshal's Luncheon or "roasting", followed by the fund raising luncheon the next day. The parade usually starts at 1pm on the Sunday.

Things slow down a little after the parade, for the next month. But the town is starting to buzz about the summer and it's still an exciting time. Of course the late spring, summer and fall hold many great things to do in Montauk.
Here's a list:

  • Visit the Montauk Point Lighthouse - website
  • Take a sunset cruise on a beautiful sailboat!
  • Participate or watch the sharks come in one of our many fishing tournaments
  • The blessing of the fleet ceremony and celebration
  • The Montauk Triathlon
  • Fourth of July fireworks - amazing over the water!
  • Attend a concert outside on the green
  • Go surfing
  • Surf Fishing (spring and fall are best)
  • Go horseback riding
  • Play miniature golf
  • Spend the day at the beach
  • Charter a boat to block island for the day (a great getaway)
  • or, do like Captain Kevin says...and go Fishing!
