The breathtaking views of St. Michael’s Mount, a historic island with a medieval castle and gardens that may be accessed by boat at high tide or by causeway at low tide, are one of Long Rock Beach’s most notable features. The beach is a well-liked location for sightseeing and photography because of the striking backdrop that St. Michael’s Mount adds to it.

There are beach cafés with small meals and snacks, as well as public restrooms. A benefit for families vacationing with their furry friends is that the beach is pet-friendly, accepting dogs all year round.
