Montauk Real Estate
Montauk real estate offers a variety of luxury estates, waterfront homes for sale, beach properties and surfer cottages as well as a wide range of summer rentals. Located at the most eastern tip of the South Fork of Long Island, Montauk has long been a destination for those enjoying water sports such as fishing, boating, water skiing and surfing. Approximately 110 miles from New York City, and easily accessible by luxury bus liner, train, boat, ferry, car, or private plane, Montauk offers daily excursions in season for whale watching, deep sea fishing, and cruise trips to Block Island.
As the first lighthouse in New York State, the famed Montauk Lighthouse has been a beacon for boaters and fisherman alike for generations. Home to the largest commercial fishing fleet in New York, Montauk’s active harbor and marinas attract many visitors every year. Montauk also publishes its own newspaper, the Montauk Sun, which features local stories, local businesses, and local events.
