We were married in early June and stayed at Long Sands. Beautiful walks on the beach at low tide. We love it here.

Just to sit and watch the ocean is so relaxing. The expanse of sandy beach at low tide seems to get all the walkers and dogs out.

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.

They have stations where you pay by credit card and put the receipt on your dashboard Be very careful as they have full time cops riding bikes monitoring these like hawks. We were back 15 minutes over and we had a ticket

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.
