Long Beach
From this idyllic beach, which is a mixture of sand, shells and pebbles, you have a great view of the forest behind it, as well as of the entire bay with its offshore islands. At Long Beach near Ao Nang you can relax, swim and enjoy a little bit of solitude. There are a few hotel complexes offering reasonably priced accommodation directly at the beach. You can get to the neighbouring Nopparat Thara Beach, where you will find numerous restaurants, cafés and bars, either by water-taxi or by moped.

Long Beach - Idyllic bay at the edge of the forest with a great view

Long Beach near Ao Nang is officially part of Nopparat Thara Beach, but is known to locals and holidaymakers as Long Beach. It is separated from the main Nopparat Thara Beach by an estuary. You are not allowed to swim through this estuary though as there is quite a lot of boat traffic. You can reach Long Beach by ferry, or alternatively by car or moped, where you will need to take a bit of a detour.

As Long Beach is not easy to get to, you will not see many other people here, even though the beaches of the popular holiday resort of Ao Nang are within sight. Directly at the beach there are a handful of reasonably priced hotel complexes whose guests can settle down on the loungers for sunbathing, or go for a swim in the sea or a walk at the beach. Otherwise the two kilometre long beach has been left to nature and you can enjoy great views of the lush green forest in the background, as well as of the sea and the bay with its offshore islands.

The water is clean and it is fairly quiet at the beach, with the exception of the eastern end where lots of motorised long-tail boats enter and exit the estuary. Long Beach would be perfect for relaxing but for one slight problem. On this light-coloured sandy beach you will not only find many small stones and shells, but also rubbish and this is also true for the forest next to Long Beach.

The beach is cleaned regularly near the hotel complexes, but in between these and at both ends of the beach lots of rubbish spoils the nice setting. Those who enjoy walking along the beach are not going to find this a pleasant sight. Although if you staying at Ao Nang for example, and have a moped, you will be able to come here to find a quiet, idyllic space to spread out without travelling too far. Also, in comparison to the other neighbouring beaches, the hotel complexes here offer reasonably priced accommodation directly at the beach.
