During the past 20 years, Montauk has developed multiple personalities. Originally a fishing village at the farthest eastern reach of Long Island, it has come to take on aspects of a family-friendly beach destination, a hippie surfer haven and the Brooklyn of the East End. With the renovation of Gurney’s Inn, there is lately a hint of South Beach in the air. Explore each layer to make the most of a vacation here.
