Living in NYC is amazing but at times all you want is to get out of the city. The destination that’s trending these days? The “un-Hamptons” otherwise known as Montauk.
This was my first time venturing to a New York beach and I loved every minute of it. Its incredible that just under a three hour drive you can be transported to a whole different world. New York City is a distant memory in your rear view mirror.
Montauk is at the very end of Long Island and is surrounded by breathtaking views of endless water. Known for it’s laid-back surf attitude, Montauk was filled with cute boutiques, great restaurants and lounges.
My personal favorite? The Surf Lodge. Everything in that hotel was Instagram worthy – I couldn’t stop taking pictures of the decor. Not to mention, it was the site of my very first Lobster Roll and it did not disappoint.
I highly recommend Montauk for an easy getaway if you’re looking to venture out of the city and want some easy-breezy beach vibes.
Hope you enjoy my photos as much as I enjoyed being there!
