Beach of the Week: Montauk Point, Long Island, NY

Scenic Montauk Point Lighthouse on Long Island, NY

Sand pails and bikinis may have been stored away until the return of warmer weather, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the beach!  Let’s head to charming Montauk, NY, a place that’s gorgeous year-round.  At the very tip of Long Island, Montauk is full of wide peaceful beaches, gorgeous scenery, and one of the country’s oldest lighthouses.

The Montauk Point Lighthouse is literally at the point of Long Island – go any further, and you’ll land in the Atlantic.  Built in 1796, under President George Washington, this lighthouse is a pretty special piece of history.  It has stood the test of time, and still serves as a navigational aid.  After you tour the lighthouse, and climb its winding steps, explore the grounds.  There is, of course, a beach nearby.  Wander down it and savor the Autumn air.  Keep your camera handy, because the views of the lighthouse from the beach are phenomenal. 

What’s your favorite place to enjoy Autumn flavor?

Don’t forget that sun protection in the Fall is still important!  SolEscapes has a gorgeous collection of sun hats that are perfect for your Fall wardrobe!
