Long Beach (T 455) once connected with Nutgrove Beach and is now separated by the seawall. The narrow 150 m long beach occupies the rear of 400 m wide Little Sandy Bay, an east-facing embayment formed between the once sandy foreland (Sandy Bay Point) and the rocks of Blinking Billy Point. Today the narrow beach is backed by a seawall, hotel, parking and park facilities, with the Sandy Bay Road clipping the southern corner of the beach. The small reflective beach receives low refracted swell, which surges up the narrow beach.
