The best part about visiting Montauk in the winter is the price tag.
Off season beach towns are the best! Montauk is one of those fishing towns that welcomes tourists for the few summer months with hotels, restaurants, mini-golf and shops and then puts closed for season signs on the windows in the winter for many of the businesses.
The ocean changes it’s personality day by day, and season by season. Water can be calm and soothing to the soul, it can reflect inner turmoil with waves of fury, or it can create waves that escalate into grand crescendos and softly release and melt back into sea with few ever having witnessed the moment. Watching the sea is one of my favorite things to do. And in the winter, you can even afford an oceanfront room so you can watch from inside with a cup of coffee in your favorite pajamas and slippers!
Visiting Montauk with family in the summer is ideal. If you need a girlfriend spa weekend getaway this is a perfect location for indulging in spa activities while even staying for an overnight. If it is the romantic night away, Montauk is the place. And even if you are alone, and need a day to reflect and rejuvenate your life, an overnight in Montauk can do the trick.
