This is a fine example of Caribbean/Atlantic seashore. The water is warm and the sand gentle on the feet along the damp parts, but darn hot on the dry. Mangroves divide the beach from intruding hotels and provide interesting habitats for the myriad of wildlife...More

Lovely beach, but can fill up very quick especially with all the locals on a Sunday. Lovely sand and lovely water with no stones on the way in.

Our cottage is located at Long Beach, Sturgeon Lake, Ontario!!! This beach was more of a local spot but very nice! Just up the beach is Big Lee's Beach Bar - a must visit!

Just relaxed on the beach and caught some sun and watched the boats go by. Nice breeze made it feel very comfortable a min. 15 sunscreen is recommended

beautiful beach which was pleasantly slightly windy. The sea was warmer than the swimming pools. The only downside were the sellers who were slightly pushy and encouraged you to visit their shops which were enclosed market stalls some distance away
