Description

Whether enjoying a swim at Long Beach, celebrating a birthday in the playground or strolling along the river edge to Blinking Billy lighthouse, the Sandy Bay foreshore is the perfect place to relax, all year round. The beach is a popular spot to cool off in summer, especially for young families. If it is too cold to swim there is always the playground to explore or maybe kick a ball on the oval at Sandown Park. The short walk along the shore to Blinking Billy Point then up to Alexandra Battery, with its gun emplacements and tunnels, is also highly recommended.
