Long Beach is a beautiful, unspoilt beach on the NSW South Coast, just waiting to be explored. It has spectacular views of the Tollgate Islands and the Tasman Sea. The beach is perfect for walking, swimming, rock pool exploring and simply relaxing.
Long Beach is situated 8km north of Batemans Bay. It is a 2 hour drive from Canberra and a 3-4 hour drive from the Sydney CBD.
Just a short walk from your accommodation is the beautiful Square Head National Park where an easy walk up to the headland will find kangaroos grazing, and birds chorusing in the tree canopy. The burrawangs amid the tall spotted gums make for beautiful scenery in addition to the sea vistas. For the more adventurous, further exploration of the sanctuary zone at Cullendulla Creek is a rewarding experience.
Batemans Bay offers a delightful array of natural landscapes to view and explore at your leisure from the Clyde River winding its way through spectacular bush, to the unspoiled beauty of Murramarang National Park. It’s not hard to immerse yourself in nature with the Batemans Marine Park nearby, abundant wildlife, whale watching in season, underwater adventure snorkelling and diving, as well as simply enjoying lazing and playing on the beach or fishing. For bush walkers there is a range of walks to suit everyone.
There is also a selection of restaurants and eateries to choose from to tempt every palate. Many have sensational views in addition to a relaxing ambiance. Try the seafood and local oysters on offer for a real taste experience. We can recommend and arrange suitable places.
