The western slopes of Mount Windham form the eastern boundary of Long Beach which, at 1.6km, is the longest beach on the south side. The long, low gradient beach faces south-south-east and, because of protection from Humpy Island, receives waves less than 0.5m high. It has a narrow, moderately steep high tide beach backed by a 10m high foredune and a 100m wide low tide bar. This beach lies 1.5km due south of the resort and 500m south of the runway, and is a popular sunbathing and swimming beach.
Beach Length: 1.6km
