How to get there

Transport
Car
Access
Short walk

Get there by car. Drive from Bridgeown eastwards towards Oistins and further east to Long Bay. Long Beach is all of a fifteen minute walk up the beach (East) from Silver Sands. If you take a cab make sure you say Long Beach and not Long Bay which is quite an expensive cab ride further and riddled with cliffs and rocks.
