A constant summer and sometimes autumn and spring place to visit, though walking your dog along the esplanade is great at any time of the year. Beach is always clean, the pontoon great fun and big grassy areas for picnics. The bbq facilities and toilets...More

Long Beach is a lovely serene area for walks and chats. The beach is sandy and easy to walk on. There is a small wood fired pizza place on Beach. After a brisk walk along the water on the beautiful beach, this is a great place...More

If you want a beach to yourself - don't go here. If you want to swim in clean water - don't go here. short drive up the road is Taroona beach - incredibly clear water, cliffs and no bogans. Long beach is not worth it.
