“Deserted during low season”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Great sunsets, Decent sand for barefoot running.
During low season the beach isn't the most maintained (drift trash both organic and plastic)

“Best beach on the island!”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

I have to say, this is the only beach in Thailand that I would like to revisit and stay a while. Very quiet, serene, and water is so clear!

“Best beach on Ko Lanta”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Long sandy beach, good for swimming and jogging. Nice mixture of popular and fancy restaurants. I saw a few SUP but couldn't figure it out where they were rented (perhaps they came from an anchoring yacht).

“i liked this beach”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

the beach is very long and it has clear water. you can swim peacefully or run or do other sport activities. can do snorkeling as well. the shore is very long and it enters the sea, you can go for quite some meters to have a deeper sea.

“Fabulous beach you are not allowed to use”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Long Beach is an endless stretch of beautiful beach, white sand, blue sea, azure sky. I could sit there and watch the sun go down every night and never tire of it, but the beach is unusable. The reason? You are not allowed by local law to erect a sun umbrella, use a sun bed or deck chair! All you can do is lie on the sand which has the same temperature as the sun, which will give you skin cancer in a shorter time than it takes you to say it.
What a shame! We had a lovely break at Koh Lanta, but couldn't spend it on the beach.
