Safety:No details available. See Beach Safety Guide

Access:At the Long Rock Beach car park there is a slipway to the beach with rocks at the bottom of the slipway making it unsuitable for wheel chair access. There are a number of other access points from the coast path. A few yards west of the car park, there is almost level access to the beach
