    Long Reef is a little out of the way as most visitors pass it by driving along Pittwater Road on the northern Beaches.....Located right on the point between Dee Why beach and Collaroy beach ,Long Reef is a very popular place among the local inhabitants..
    Not only does it have good surf ,but it has a "unique wave" here that I am told seems to come from nowhere of the rocky point ...This is called The Bombora" The Bombora is reputed to be very dangerous but worth the good ride..so famous is the Bombora a surfing hit was made of it in the early sixties...as at this period in time this was becoming a worldwide famous surfing area along these northern beaches..Two surfing world Champions came from this local suburb of Collaroy..
    Long Reef , among locals is also a great place to buy freshly caught fish off the local fisherman on the beach..fresh isn't the word..There also is a boatramp at Long Reef to launch your boat off the trailer ramp.

    Australias beautiful beaches are well known world wide .The sunburnt country also prides itself on the standard of its lifesaving and rescue services on all its patrolled beaches. The beach is always a fun place to spend the day with the familily or friends but is not without its dangers.
    Each day beaches are inspected to determine the safest places for the public to swim..These designated swim areas are then marked with red/yellow safety flags and placed in the designated areas. ALWAYS swim between the safety flags that are on the beach.These flags are placed there for your very safety.
