1. Walking Dunes:
A self-guided nature trail about 5 miles west of Montauk Village at the end of Napeague Harbor Road. The loop trail affords a great view of Napeague Harbor. Pack a hat, some sunscreen and some water and take off for the afternoon.

The hotel is beautifully located on a private waterfront in the East Hampton hamlet of Montauk, which is on the South Fork of Long Island. Rooms are spacious with private patios offering both an indoor and outdoor relax experience. The hotel also offers so many fun activities, definitely somewhere we would stay again and absolutely recommend.
