This beach is beautiful! It is great for walking, swimming or just sitting by and enjoying the view. Plenty of parking in the off season.

Long Sands is a great beach, especially at low tide when it seems to be a mile wide (when it's high tide, it's more like a sliver of beach). You can see Nubble Point Lighthouse from the lower half of the beach.

Major damage from the many storms. Sidewalks were destroyed. We will be voting on this week on allocations to repair the side walks. The ocean causes lots of damage every year. They are rebuilding the walls to avert this.
