Situated on the south-east coast of the island, Longis has a wide, half-mile long sandy beach which is protected from winds by a German 'anti-tank wall' built during the WWII Occupation.
With the longest stretch of sand in Alderney, the bay has a gentle slope, making it ideal for swimming and paddling as well as playing games on the beach. The water is also a great place to get out on a kayak. It is truly impressive at low tide as you can walk out for miles and explore the rock pools.
Don't forget to keep an eye out for the Ice-Cream van, Longis Bay is a popular stop off.
Longis is the most accessible beach for everyone. By The Nunnery Heritage Site end of the beach there is a car park, public toilets and a large ramp down to the beach. A great choice for the whole family or a simple walk with the pushchair to get little one to sleep with the sound of the waves.
