The beach, sea and sky are different every time I visit. It provides endless material for photos, and is ideal for some easy fresh air and exercise.

This is such a beautiful beach. The sad thing was we saw a number of dog walkers not picking up their dogs poop!!

We've visited this beach many times as we live very close to Longsands. Always a special place no matter what the weather. Fresh air. Open space. Feeling of freedom. Should be visited if in the area. Highly recommended.
