Longis Bay, St Anne, Alderney, GY9

See the route

Longis Bay is situated on Alderney's sheltered southern coast.  The bay is a wide, half-mile sandy beach which is protected from winds by a wall built by the Germans during World War II

The beach is bounded to the east by a causeway to Raz Island, home to the victorian Fort Raz (Fort Ile de Raz), which is covered at high tide, and the Tudor fortification, Essex Castle to the west; both subsequently fortified during World War II.

There are plenty of rockpools to explore towards the eastern end of the beach and the gently sloping sands make it ideal for paddling.
