Montauk Point State Park

Montauk, Suffolk County

While visiting the famous Montauk Lighthouse, stand on the surrounding bluffs to get a dramatic view of land's end and the Atlantic Ocean at this park, which encompasses much of the eastern tip of Long Island. From bluffs and beach, watch a variety of seabirds gliding on ocean breezes or floating on the waves offshore. Harbor seals regularly haul themselves out to rest on rocks a short distance from the beach. During marine migratory periods, you'll often see pods of playful white-sided, common and bottle-nosed dolphins gorging on small fish that congregate in massive numbers at certain times of the year.
