Longrock beach lies around half way between Penzance and Marazion. Despite being a long sandy beach with views over Mount's Bay and St Michael's Mount, it is rarely ever busy. It does have a slightly scruffy feel in sections where it backs onto the railway lines but is generally clean and swimming is very safe. To the rear of the beach is a long flat section of the south west coast path which doubles as a cycle path. Dogs are allowed between the car park and Penzance making this one of the dog friendliest beaches around.
