Beachy girls, summer is (un)officially here! I know June 21st is technically the official start to summer but when the sun is shining for 2 weeks straight I can't help but feel the summer vibes. Summer and vacation come hand in hand so I wanted to share with you one of My Beachy Side's favorite summer spots to wear our barefoot sandals. Montauk. Don't get me wrong I love everything the Hamptons have to offer but Montauk holds a special place in my heart. The town is the perfect love child of surf culture and luxury. Today I wanted to share with you some of my go-to spots in Montauk.
1. Wölffer Estates Vineyard
So this vineyard is not in Montauk but it is on your way :) This beautiful estate will absolutely take your breath away. This spot is not somewhere you want to pass by without stopping for a glass of wine.
2. The Montauk Lighthouse
This lighthouse is the oldest lighthouse in New York and it's truly beautiful. It sits on top of a hill overlooking the ocean. It's a great quick trip to see the beauty and historical parts of Montauk!
3. The Surf Lodge
This place is hands down my favorite spot in Montauk. This dreamy bohemian oasis is exactly where you want to be when the sun is setting. Whether you're looking to eat, drink or listen to music this is THE place to be in Montauk.
4. Gin Beach
Gin Beach is a great spot to watch the surfers but I love it even more when the sun goes down. Summer bonfires at Gin Beach are a local favorite and I know you would enjoy it too.
5. Disco Fries (South Edison)
I had to add this to the list because it's way too good not to mention. It's hard to find but once you do I promise you won't be disappointed. This tiny walk up to the window style restaurant has capitalized on late night snacking. It's only open from midnight until 3 AM so it's a great post-bar spot!
Now I've only given you a tiny peak into life in Montauk so I urge you to go and experience it for yourself. Thankfully our beachwear accessories are lightweight and easily portable to take with you :)
Stay Beachy xo
