I arrived Sunday 14th Sept. to Koh Lanta and my stay is booked for two weeks but I'm not sure I want to stay here, even though I would loose my booking. The beach looks devastated, I asked the resort manager what happened. Appearantly there were big tides and storms, which disrooted trees and destroyed roofs. I walked down the... More

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

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!

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).

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.

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... More

Long beach is clean and beautiful and makes the perfect pre dinner walk. Even at "peak' hour it is almost deserted in comparison to any Australian beach in summer. A beautiful place to be.

A stunning swimming beach with a great atmosphere. Everyone is layed back and relaxed and you don't have to worry about being hassled by hawkers. There are no water sports which makes for a quiet and relaxing beach holiday.

Don't come here in June. I just arrived and am cutting my trip short. The beach looks nothing like the photos posted. There is rubbish everywhere. The ocean is quite rough looking and I wouldn't swim in it. Beach is too filthy to enjoy any sunbaking. Maybe in high season it gets cleaned up and looks better? I am really... More
