the place is filled with hostels for backpackers, there are couple of bars around and and open door club, if you are into this kind of crowd you'll most probably enjoy it. there are few outdoor restaurants on the beach and the food there is very delicious, but the service is bad as usual. if you are going with family...

One backpaker said that he had a "bad vibe" about this island when he tried finding accommodation. Accommodation owners were not very friendly to him. I found the same.

No garbage bin in sight, forcing people to discard their garbage, beer cans and cigarette butts on the beach. Super crowded even at 2pm when the sun is high up and overall not a very nice walking experience. Water was clear and garbage was collected every morning though.

I rarely give a negative review even though I sometimes feel I should. I usually prefer to shut up and mind my own business. I have just spent a few days at Long Beach, Perhentian Is. Firstly I must say "what a beautiful island". I done the "three island snorkling tour" with Bu Bu tours and it's with-a- doubt the... More

Beautiful stretch of beach, crystal clear waters, a few cafes but nothing to disrupt the peace and tranquility. At night there are burning torches and a fire pit on the beach - a chilled out party vibe.

Nice bars and some good restaurants. Definitely a good place to hang out for the young. Price level quite high though.

Super clean water and sand. Great fun to dive off the pier at high tide. Banana boat is cheap and fun. Snorkel and feed the fish under the pier. At night get a massage and have a drink in the local bars. Its quite but not too quite.
