Best time to travel to Montauk vacation homes

Summer is the most popular period to visit Long Island and is also the hardest time to find cheap Montauk vacation rentals. Temperatures average in the high 70s during the day, with water temperatures much the same, and southwesterly winds keeping things comfortable. The Atlantic Ocean has a moderating effect on the climate, so spring starts late and fall lasts through November. That makes these cheaper shoulder months an appealing time to snap up Montauk vacation rentals and make the most of smaller crowds and better availability. You can also book for the mild winter months if a festive break is more to your taste.
