Long Beach (aka Haycock Beach), in Ben Boyd National Park, has well-earned its name, as the crescent shaped, yellow sand beach is about 7.25km long. The beach stretches from Haycock Point in the north, and is roughly divided into three section by two small rocky points. There are plenty of places to access the beach by a short walk from the road. Some entrances to the beach are quiet spectacular, passing through pinnacle-like gorges. The surf is not patrolled, but the beach is a popular fishing spot for locals.
