Long Beach - White dream beach for relaxing
Long Beach is on the west coast of Koh Lanta Yai. The white, sandy beach stretches for three kilometres along the coast. The island of Koh Lanta is not far from Krabi and is one of the quieter islands in the south of Thailand. If you come to this island you are most likely looking for some peace and quiet and that is what you will get at Long Beach.
If you want, you can stay in one of the hotel complexes directly at the beach and start the day with a view of the ocean. For the more budget-conscious there are also several places to stay not far from the beach. You will also find numerous hostels and guest houses along the sandy paths leading to the beach.
In addition to the hotels there are several restaurants and bars directly at the beach. There during the day you can enjoy food and drink in a relaxed atmosphere, and in the evenings admire the beautiful sunsets. In spite of the excellent setting, prices here are very reasonable.
Although there are several hotels and bars at Long Beach, even during the main season you can still find many quiet areas to spend an undisturbed day. For those looking for a bit more action, there are several volleyball courts at the beach. There are also three diving schools here, where you can book various courses and also hire canoes and stand-up paddles for the day.
