“lovely family beach.....especially good for small kids”
Review of Long Beach

Long Beach

Reviewed July 15, 2014

The people who come here with their families are very respectful of other people enjoying the beach.
The only improvement would be a public rest room and some rubbish barrels.

unlike the "neighboring" beach up the road this one seemed to have a nicer "clientle" it was quaint and the access as well as parking is far better than Good Harbor beach plus the cost to park is less

We've been going here for years. We love Wingaersheek and Good Harbor, but there's just something special about Long Beach. Maybe it's the boardwalk where you can walk and dream about spending a summer in one of the cottages, maybe it's the surf…. but probably it's the memories you'll make there.

For many years we have brought our children here and even rented a cottage on the beach. We eventually bought a summer home here a few minutes walk from the beach. Our children have grown and we have retired here in our summer cottage. This is a great beach for kids and families. Unfortunately the access to this beach can be difficult. Even though it is a public beach you can only access the back road if you have a cottage on the beach. There is a parking lot for residents and a parking lot on the Gloucester end for a price. If you think you would like to spend a day on the beach I would recommend that you arrive before ten to get a space at the Gloucester end parking lot. To find this lot you need to turn right just before the dairy maid on thatcher rd. and go to almost the end. Turn left at the sign for public parking. Once you park, if you don't mind walking go to the middle of the beach and you will feel like you are on your own private beach, as both ends are crowded, but the middle is practically empty! Enjoy!

It was of the most beautiful beach I've ever seen, the sea was great, the beach is really long the sand is white and the water is transparent! I went there at 8 o'clock in the morning and I have been in that amazing 2 hours completely alone!
