Just before we headed into the chilly weather, we headed to Montauk, NY. The easternmost tip of Long Island in East Hampton and New York state, Montauk, is called “The End.” Formerly a sleepy, old hamlet with residents who fished, raised cattle, and lived on this island, glaring out seemingly into the vast blue Atlantic ocean. Without a doubt, it rightly feels like you are the end of the world.
Thereupon, one of my favorite places in the Northeast, Montauk, has a lot to offer. Not just pristine, crisp blue waters with picturesque shoreline views, but rolling geography, freshwater wetlands, hiking trails, and bluffs. Furthermore, fishing enthusiasts, bikers, surfers, hikers, and beachgoers – anybody and everybody is invited!
We stayed at the Montauk Blue Hotel, and the Oceanfront view from our Balcony did not disenchant. Dawn and Dusk empyrean colors with a glass of wine, Bonfires on the sand, and the slight September chill beguiled us.
Our early morning started with a hike & view of the oldest lighthouse of New York state. Notably, our vantage point was Camp Hero State Park, with stunning edge cliffs that open up to the vast expanse of the ocean. The highland here offers a sight of surfers watching the swells, riding freely upon their crest and the ships drifting lazily and dissipating into the September air.
In the afternoon, we enjoyed a stroll over well-worn paths at the Shadmoor State Park. Walking through the thickets, alongside the wildflowers, butterflies, you reach up onto the bluffs with amazing cliffside views of oceans.
And, after all this action, when you are seaside, it is time for lobster rolls, steamed clams, and fish and chips.
Finally, our end of summer recharged, and we headed home! Only until next time! Indeed, this idyllic getaway Montauk always has something spectacular.
