“Absolutely different ambiance”
Review of Long Beach

Long Beach
Reviewed 1 July 2014

People come here to enjoy and party!!! Too much booze and music I must say, and it's certainly not cheap. Nonetheless, a great place to be when you want to spend some time with friends partying - after spending hours under water & sun.

I expected to see a beautiful panorama when I first viewed Long Beach but was very disappointed as its so busy and there's lots of rubbish - both stacked in piles and being burnt back in the forest behind the beach. There's a large Industrial barge parked half way along the beach with heavy earth moving equipment going back and forth - certainly not what I would expect of a top peaceful tourist beach location. However as I am not a young backpacker, maybe I don't see the beauty as it was obvious that beer at the various bars is more readily available and cheaper here than over on Coral Bay. Bu-Bu's is a good spot for lunch and is the pick, overlooking a very busy beach with lots of tourists and long boats parked out the front in the 'surf'. There's lots of tourists/families swimming, volleyball being played and divers learning/doing their PADI dive courses of the beach etc. It appears that the growth has been allowed to run unchecked without any environmental standards being imposed. It's a little sad to think what this place will look like in 5 years. That's progress they say, but it looks like the Goose that laid the Golden Egg is slowly being choked to death. Get there before it's too late.

How underwhelming after Gili Meno. Busy, cluttered, filthy, smelly and overcrowded. Building are a mess. Nice sand and water clear. OK if yo need snorkel/dive assistance. Has many restaurants on the beach. Nothing endears it to me.

A great beach to be. The sand is white and the water is clear blue. Even after a couple of meters swimming you find yourself between tropical fish. Artificial reef is constructed. In the next years I expect you'll see more fish.
