Longis was the site of Alderney's first harbour. It was inhabited in the Iron Age, and by the Romans, who left behind the best preserved fortlet in the British Isles. The German anti-tank wall which backs the beach serves, if anything, to enhance the place.

The beach is beautiful and you have a lovely view of Raz Island. Unlike Saye Bay the beach is on the south of the island so you do not get any waves and so is good for wading.

A lovely beach. As it was April I had the beach almost to myself. Just someone digging for rag worms for fish bait and the oyster catchers. There is a very friendly cafe nearby which sells excellent cake and lattes.

Pack comfortable shoes and wet weather gear (just in case); the history of the island is a must see in real time.

This is probably the longest beach on Alderney, with a shallow tide. The water is freezing, but the setting is beautiful with a Victorian fort and the compulsory causeway to it framing the north part of the bay.

Alderney boasts some beautiful bays, with white sand, and blue waters. This is one of them. Being a Channel Islander, I ould say, that although there arent necessarily facilities at the beaches,gey are wuite stunning.
