Long beach is long so even when lots of people are there ... it never seems too crowded. Nice sand, clear water, lots of seafront places to eat and drink. Beach parties at night with performers etc.

We stayed here over Xmas & expected it to be busy. In fact, the beach was really quiet most of the time and we had loads of space to ourselves. The sand is gorgeous and soft and there is some shade from trees at several points along the beach. The only strange thing was that hardly anyone was swimming. We soon discovered why... There seemed to be tiny jellyfish in the water during the week we were there. As we were swimming we felt tiny stings and could touch things with our fingers, but we couldn't see them. The stings don't leave any marks and don't actually hurt - it was just a momentary stinging sensation. The people at our resort said that it was probably baby jellyfish...
Weird! A good place to eat on this beach is Lym's Rice Bowl.

Long Beach is, literally, the ideal beach. It's huge. Stretching forever in both directions. The water is bathtub warm, the sun is always overhead (except when it grants you the most beautiful sunsets on earth and while there are people everywhere, it never feels crowded because it's just so big.

There are bars, restaurants and massage places everywhere - so whenever you get a hankering for anything, it's just a quick stroll through the sand to whatever you desire. We enjoyed great food, cool drinks and some wonderful Thai Massages - all without ever leaving the beach.

Go. Enjoy. It is postcard perfect.

Lovely clean beach with lots of little restaurants and massage places dotted along it. There were some sea lice so it might be an idea to pack from fresh water and/or vinegar in your beach bag if you have sensitive skin. Buy a cheap lilo (around 200bt) and float in bliss.

Even during high season the beach was never crowded. We loved that you could walk from bar to bar and from restaurant to restaurant over the beach at night. On the roadside there are even more options for drinks and eating.
Closingtime is generaly early (10PM) so for the real partyanimals this might not be the right place to stay, but we didn't mind ending the evening with a beer from our own fridge.
