Holiday in Montauk

Orientation

Montauk - a vacation destination

Known locally as 'The End', Montauk lies at the easterly tip of Long Island in New York State. In 1895 when the Long Island Railroad reached the town, there were plans to turn Montauk into the Miami Beach of the North. Much of the present town was laid out at this period, but the stock market crash of 1929 put paid to further development. Montauk really took off as a vacation resort in the 1960s when prefabricated leisure homes could be bought fully furnished. As well as being a tourist destination, Montauk has a large recreational fishing fleet and holds more saltwater fishing records than anywhere else in the world.

A Long Island town with a long history

The town gets its name from the Native American Montaukett tribe that hunted, fished and raised cattle on the land. The first white settler was granted land by King Charles I in 1639 and lived amicably alongside the Montaukett people. In 1792, President George Washington ordered the building of the lighthouse that still stands today while Deep Hollow Ranch became the first cattle ranch in the USA.

Getting there

Montauk is easily accessible from three airports, John F Kennedy and La Guardia Airports in Queens New York and MacArthur Airport in Islip. Only one road runs along Long Island as far as Montauk, this is the Sunrise Highway or Route 27 that starts in New York City.

Activities

A destination for beach activities and surfing

Montauk is a great destination for beach lovers. Children can have fun building sandcastles during the day while families and friends can share beach barbecues in the evening. Ditch Plains Beach is great for surfers while kayaks can be launched from Fort Pond Bay.

A destination for outdoor enthusiasts

With its coastal location and proximity to state parks, there are always plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy in and around Montauk. Former army and navy bases have been turned into the Camp Hero State Park with its hiking, cycling, and horseriding trails while Hither Hills State Park has a long beach frontage. Wetlands and ponds can be found at Amsterdam Beach State Park, a largely undeveloped area nicknamed the 'Montauk Moorlands'.

A family-friendly destination

As well as family fun on the beach, Montauk offers other activities for the whole family. Deep Hollow Ranch takes you back in time to the early days of cattle ranching while local stables offer beach and countryside pony and horse trekking. Montauk also has tennis clubs, a miniature golf course, and children's playgrounds.

The Camp Hero military base was built during the war and disguised so that it appeared as a New England fishing village from above.
