Fishing Capital of Long Island

Montauk

Located on the easternmost tip of Long Island, Montauk is a popular seaside resort community. It is home to the largest commercial fishing fleet in New York state, making it a destination for recreational fishermen and coastal visitors alike. Surfers are also attracted to Montauk due to its variety of waves and artists for its remote geography at "The End.”

What to Expect

Hip visitors mingle with coastal locals

In the 1920s, entrepreneur Carl Fisher hoped to make Montauk the Miami of the North. Though his vision was never realized, Montauk remains a popular destination. A wealthy younger crowd keeps bars busy on weekends, but Montauk has traditionally been and remains family oriented. From golfing and horseback riding to sightseeing and spa days, Montauk is the ultimate retreat.

Choose from beachside bungalows to chic resorts

With Montauk's proximity to both the ocean and bays, real estate here is not for the faint of heart. Homes start at $650,000 and quickly rise to the $5 million range and beyond. Andy Warhol's former estate sold to J. Crew CEO Mickey Drexler for $50 million in 2015. Longtime talk show host Dick Cavett's estate, Tick Hall, with its sweeping views of the ocean from its perch on a bluff, is listed for $62 million. Commercial real estate is also at a premium with resorts taking up much of the downtown waterfront real estate.
