Down on Long Beach on most of our few days on Koh Lanta. It's a long beach with golden sand, lots of bars & restaurants spread out & not too mental. It's a great place to chill, watch the sunset & have a beer or a cocktail.

One of Lanta's better beaches. We arrived early morning so we basically had the beach to ourselves. It was nice and clean and there is a great public parking area with plenty of shade. It would definitely be a great spot for people of all ages, especially families with young children.

Second year in a row we have stayed at this beach. We will always stay here when we come back. It is long and clean and wide with nice blue water. Small waves, nice beach restaurants and bars to choose from. Much nicer than some of the other beaches we've seen on the island.

Long beach has soft sand, looking to west and not too crowdy. Wonderfull sunsets and lot of beach bars to chill out in the sunset.

A true fly and flop destination. If you want total isolation this is not the place. A bustling beach full of little bars and restaurants and massage venues. But, not the mass over populated ones of Pattaya. Quiet during the day with no music in the bars and no loungers etc allowed on the beach it is still relatively un... More

Beaches, beaches. Lovely golden sands, a few rocks in the sea which were a pain but the water was so clear and warm. The beaches had many different bars to visit, some with music or just very peaceful. A great location for watching sunsets. In the main the roads were good but beware of some potholes. A lovely array of... More

Long Beach is the best beach in Ko Lanta to swim, eat and enjoy the sunset during happy hour. I can only recommend it

Beautifully long that it's easy to find a spot to sit, relax & watch the world go by privately, not to mention that it's one of the best beaches to watch the sunset from in Thailand.

We visited most of the beaches on the island and came to the conclusion that Long Beach is probably the best all-round choice. Close enough to the pier. Very good range of bungalows and restaurants. You can find whatever level of either that best suits you. Beach is not as subject to the tides as some others. Great sunsets, but... More
