Long Rock is a sand and pebbles beach that has a shallow gradient so a lot of water before it gets deep which makes safe family swimming.
The beach sits in the middle of the long stretch of sand within Mount’s Bay.
No direct lifeguards but the east end of the beach touches on the Marazion beach that does have summer lifeguards.
Parking and other facilities in Long Rock village.
Long Rock beach does not allow dogs between Easter and October.
