ATTENTION there are criminals: we were swimming for less than one hour, in that time they were manipulating our motorcycle and played the helpers when we came back and could not start it. For the help they requested 100.000 Rupia! One of them introduced himself...More

Nice long beach but not so clean. The problem is also the shallow water that can be nice for kids but prevent you from swimming. As a european family we also felt not so comfortable being watched by local people.

Uncontrolled developments have made the beach very dirty while the various sea sport operators seem only interested in enlarging their respective business spaces

We were dissapointed with this beach expecting a serene white sandy beach. It was on one side amazing seeing that this is by the Toba Lake (or rather in the middle of it) and not some beach by the sea. But unfortunately it was over-developed...More

We rented a motorbike and went to Long Beach. Was disappointed. Beach was dirty, full of rubbish, and you can't really swim there. We ended having some beers by the beach and enjoy the dramatic view which was quite nice.
