Great spot. However, 8 dollars for parking and 11 dollars to go up lighthouse. We decided to walk around. Definitely walking around the edge and the bottom near the ocean was worth it. We have done other lighthouses so honestly we did not feel the need to do this one but if you have kids or haven't been to a... More

Simply love the lighthouse and the possibility to be there, directly at the ocean. I think it's worth the ride, especially because Long Island is beautiful alltogether.

The Montauk Lighthouse is historic and is worth a trip. There is a museum at the bottom. You can also walk the grounds. Great for picture taking.

$11 per person and $8 to park your car. Crazy money to look at a small museum and walk up a flight of stairs to see the view. ( and get a tick bite for your trouble!)

It's a lighthouse with about 150 stairs to the top. When we were there it was very windy. The museum is interesting. Not too exciting. I thought the coolest part was that we could see Rhode Island across the ocean. It's not a attraction I would recommend for the drive.
