 We get a lot of questions regarding what there is to do in Montauk during the “off season”. Everyone who asks us this question doesn’t realize Montauk is truly the most remarkable during this time. Without the continuous crowds, there is actually room to enjoy Montauk in it’s simplest form.


Getting here is simple. You can drive out, train out, take the ferry out or bus out. You could also walk, but we don’t recommend it. Public transportation seems pretty convenient to us.


Everyone thinks that everything closes after August. What they don’t realize is that there are PLENTY of places to eat and drink. (feel free to click on their website links for more info & menus)

Have a nice sit-down dinner:

Grab Lunch:

Pick up food:

Grab Coffee (and bagels):

Have a Drink:


  • Visit the Montauk Point Lighthouse which was built in 1979. The lighthouse was commissioned by George Washington and it is the oldest lighthouse in the state of NY.
  • Beach It: The ocean is literally around the corner from the Daunt’s Albatross Motel.
  • Ice Skate with an ocean view at Gurney’s Resort located off of the old Montauk Highway.
  • Visit Gosman’s Dock founded in 1943 by Robert and Mary Gosman.
  • Deep Hollow Ranch: The oldest working ranch in the US. Go Horseback riding!
  • Camp Hero: Explore what is left of a decommissioned army base with plenty of trails rich in history. 
  • Shadmoor State Park: Trails located on the bluffs at Ditch Planes, a famous surf spot. 
  • Navy Road Park: Located on the sound side of Montauk, Navy Road is a scenic spot to watch the sunset. 
  • Seal Haul out Trail: A popular trail that leads you to the beach where Harbor Seals enjoy sunbathing.


We hope this gave you a better idea of what it’s like to experience Montauk in the fall.

We hope to see you soon!
