The northern Long Reef end (NSW 314a) is backed by Long Reef Reserve and golf course in the north, with Long Reef SLSC (founded 1950) and car park located north of the usually closed entrance to the small Dee Why Lagoon (Fig. 4.211). South of the lagoon entrance is a relatively natural vegetated sand barrier, part of the Dee Why Lagoon Wildlife Reserve. It is a relatively popular summer beach, particularly as the summer northeast winds blow offshore. In winter it is exposed and often blown out, but popular with windsurfers.
