Sunrise Yoga on the Beach:
Start your day with an invigorating yoga session on the beach. Many local yoga studios and wellness centers offer sunrise classes. Find a peaceful spot near the shore, breathe in the fresh sea air, and let the gentle sound of the waves guide you through a revitalizing practice. Explore the daily class options offered through the Seawater Spa.

Head to one of Montauk's charming cafes for a nutritious breakfast. Look for establishments that prioritize locally sourced, organic ingredients. Enjoy a hearty bowl of overnight oats, a fresh fruit smoothie, or a veggie-packed omelet while soaking up the welcoming ambiance. We love Joni’s or Naturally Good Cafe.

Nature Hike at Hither Hills State Park:
Embark on a nature hike at Hither Hills State Park. This expansive park offers scenic trails through woodlands, dunes, and along the coastline. Immerse yourself in the beauty of nature, breathe in the salty ocean breeze, and relish in the calming effect of the environment.

Experienced instructors will guide you through the basics, making it suitable for all skill levels. Ride the waves or paddle along the coastline, connecting with the power of the ocean and enjoying an exhilarating experience. We recommend Coreyswave.

Picnic Lunch at Montauk Point State Park:
Refuel with a healthy picnic lunch at Montauk Point State Park, home to the iconic Montauk Lighthouse. Find a scenic spot overlooking the ocean or spread your blanket near the lighthouse. Pack a nourishing meal filled with fresh salads, whole-grain sandwiches, and hydrating beverages to keep you energized for the afternoon.
