“A must-see in Montauk”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

More beautiful ad historic than I imagined. Amazing photo ops and an all around great experience.

After 4:00 there is free parking. It was $9 per person for access to the lighthouse, which included entry into the actual lighthouse. Walk down the hill to the deck overlooking the bluffs. Incredible scenery.

The lighthouse and it's property are well kept. Friendly people selling the tickets, too.

Grab a beer after your tour overlooking the water across from the parking lot. There's a little gift shop in there too.

I will be back!

“Crowded...”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Best seen from the beach at a distance. In my opinion not worth the entrance. I liked the view of the lighthouse from the beach, but the line to get to climb the stair to the top of the light house was just ridiculous.

“Montauk Point Lighthouse”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

The place is great in a nice elevated ground. A place to watch the Atlantic Ocean full of fishing boat as they try to catch big fish. The drive to Montauk on a Saturday is slow due to traffic at 495. Looks like everyone is heading to the beach on Saturday. Luckily we missed the heavy downpour.

“A must see”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

View a piece of American history. Worth the entrance fees. However, I felt it a bit unnecessary to be charged for both parking and entrance fees to the LIGHTHOUSE….use a credit towards admission fees from parking fees.
