Where to go...

The formerly sleepy fishing village and artists’ enclave on the eastern tip of Long Island is now a mecca for surfers and NYC denizens looking for a lower-key alternative to the Hamptons—but a town known as the End hasn’t lost its authentic charm

White paneled Surf Lodge with painted rainbow-hued abstract accent

The Surf Lodge It’s known for its after-hours scene, but we love it for brunch. Order the watermelon and lemon feta salad for the perfect combination of savory and sweet

Ditch Plains The go-to surf spot. Bring your board or your camera—or both, à la our in-house lensman Scott Rudin

Outdoor lounge area with fire pit, wooden chairs & white string lights

The Crow’s Nest The restaurant at Sean MacPherson’s boho-inflected hotel is the perfect spot for a sunset cocktail. Arrive early: They don’t take reservations

What to Pack...
Pink striped linen shirt, blue canvas espadrilles & more Montauk essentials
