Beautiful beach... great place to do some beachcombing just after low tide. The sands go on for many hundreds of yards and it's a very deep beach. Lots of great views, easy to spend more than a hour or two just enjoying the peacefulness of the sea.

My partner and I braved the misty weather to walk the beach from end to end, twice, in less than thirty six hours. Sunrise is hushed and beautiful and makes me wonder how it is that I might never live in York full time. That kind of gorgeous.

Beautiful long beach to enjoy the simple pleasures of life - walking the beach, listening to the sound of the ocean waves, surfing in the Atlantic, or just relaxing in he sun.

Great beach during low tide. During hide tide there is a very minimal beach and people have to camp out on rocks.

This is a great place for families or couples to visit while in the area. Great ocean views and great beach. Lots of beach for play or whatever. Also, don't miss the sunrise here over the ocean. It is simply AWESOME 😊

Visited many times. Clean, esthetic, family oriented. Good walking on beach or side walks. Town is quaint with many well kept homes and cottages. Would recommend to all. Can walk downtown to shops , food and atmosphere.

Such a beautiful walk... the sand is firm, the beach is clean, parking was plentiful in September (note: parking might be a problem in the summer months). You can walk miles on the beach, breath fresh ocean air and have a good workout. There are many surfers enjoying the waves - fun to watch. And it is a seagulls' kingdom.... More

Brought my girls here (ages 2 and 8) while on vacation. I was really impressed with how clean it was here. There were quite a few people but the beach goes on forever so you can spread out. My older daughter loved splashing in the ocean while the younger one played happily in the smooth sand.

We stayed on Long Sands Beach at the Cutty Sark. Best around from my opinion. The beach goes on forever. Great for walking. Great for sunning. Great for sitting and watching the waves roll in. Close proximity to restaurants, groceries, shopping and more!

This is one of our favorite beaches to stroll for miles. Drinks and eats nearby. Just beautiful! We like even more in the fall when the crowds have left. It is easy to forget that the road is nearby.
