We visited Long Point before high season, so we had to take the long narrow (bumpy!) dirt road in rather than the shorter road that is opened later in June. What was great was that we kind of had the place to ourselves except for...More

Best of both worlds. On one side is the ocean on the other is a pond. There is also a seal that we see every year. Best parking is in overflow.

Long Point is my family's go-to beach on MV. It's terrific for young kids because there's a lovely wide beach situated on a freshwater pond that's very shallow out about 50 feet. So, no risk of kids getting dragged out by rip currents, etc. For...More

This was a highlight of our trip. It was very very pretty. However, the trail system is very short. We did the whole thing in 30 minutes.
