If you like swimming in sewage effluent, and being stung by blobs of jellyfish, this is the beach. Plus there is a progressive privatization of all of these beaches, which, although in theory are public, their access is being limited to those who consume and therefore have a right to the necessary facities such as a shower after swimming.

Beautiful Long Beach with clear waters and white sand. Plenty of bars,restaurants and resorts but enough space for everybody. Big minus is that there is no shadow at all, so if you suffer from the heat during the day you won't find any!

A great long stretch of golden sand, very chilled and relaxing with a great mixture of restaurants and bars.

Great Beach that is quiet and more relaxing than the other beaches in the area. Hardly any kids around as well!

Long Beach has a nice sandy beach to enjoy the sun between two dives into the water for refreshment. If you like a quiet beach with not many people, it's a good place to be.

The beach is really long as the name said, you can get to the next rocky beach if you walk to the end. It was clear water and fine for swimming except the day after some night storms which brought jelly fishes to the beach.

I prefer to call it Phra Ae Beach. Apparently the foreigners started calling it Long Beach, which is why it is now referred to as Long Beach, but this beach is much shorter and not as wide as its next door neighbor to the north, Khlong Dao beach.

A great beach. Spacious, beautiful water and lots of bars. Much busier than most beaches but still very relaxing. Can also rent umbrellas and beds

Not as developed as Klong Dao to the north, but not as laid back as Klong Nin to the south, and without the same dramatic landscapes as the beaches further south. Long, never packed, but nothing too special.
