Although scenic, Longnook Beach may not be ideal for all beach goers. Entry to the beach requires a long walk down a steep dune that could be challenging for children and/or the elderly. The towering dunes isolate the beach from the outside world and only the ocean’s sound can be heard. The grade to the water is slight although nothing like the trip down to the beach. Beach sand is soft and mostly debris-free with a small accumulation of pebbles and shells at the water’s edge. One half mile south nude sunbathing is common.
