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.

Well there were the last time we were there, best to ask the resort. Would be very surprised if there weren't lights in the BBQ areas.
