We stayed on the southern part of the island but drove to Cape Santa Maria beach after many recommendations...it was worth the hour and forty five minute drive! The resort on the beech was closing for September, but the staff was very friendly and let us use the beach. My husband and I were the only ppl on the beach... More

Beautiful, mostly deserted 2 mile crescent beach with white sand clear aquamarine water and no waves. Good snorkeling on the south end, far from the resort. There's a resort with lounge chairs and paddle boards, but very strictly for guests only, so beware.

I have been to been to some of the finest beaches but none compare to this place. The whitest softest sand I have ever seen and the ocean is crystal clear. Outstanding snorkeling within walking distance, great fishing, great bar and outstanding staff. I wish I had another star to give.

We had lunch at Cape Santa Maria on the terrace outside on the water and the food was great, service was great and the beach was gorgeous. Most likely the most beautiful beach on the island!

Had lunch there while staying at another resort. Beautiful, clean, great food and staff. Met the friendly black resort cat, who appears to have 2 severe eye infections. Hoping that this cat is under vet care before he goes blind.

Great place to enjoy the beach and lovely water. Food hits the spot. Good fishing and watersports. Nothing to cause stress or distraction. Will be returning:

A spectacular beach. Probably the nicest I have ever been on. We took a trip from Stella Maris to snorkel here. I would highly recommend going here.

I have not stayed at the Cape Santa Maria resort...but I have visited the beach each and everytime I visit Long Island. It has to be one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been on.

I liked everything about this resort. It's gorgeous, with crystal clear water and white soft sand. If you're looking for a vacation spot away from the crowds and noise, this is the perfect place to be!

Having been to Long Island twice now, Cape Santa Maria is still our favorite place to stay and number one destination.
