Longrock is a safe family beach with sand and pebbles halfway between Penzance and Marazion. Favoured with Penzance locals as it is the most easily accessible stretch of sandy beach from town. Swimming here is particularly safe as the water is shallow for quite a long way out. This also makes it a popular spot for windsurfing.
Marazion lifeguards keep en eye on the far eastern end of the beach during the summer months.
Please note: Dogs are not allowed on this beach during July and August (between the hours of 10am - 6pm) when a seasonal dog ban is in place. (2021)
