Beautiful beach

Shells everywhere and not much sand. But it doesn't matter. The sunset makes up for it. Perfect. Plenty of nice places to eat and drink as well.

The beach is very clean, although lacking in shade after the morning. No sellers walking around and it was never very busy when we were there (early December). Watch out for the rocks in the water, some are huge...

Not too touristy, low rise huts leading down to a lovely sandy beach, all selling a variety of food, drinks and massage. Laid back and no hassle

A long, laid back beach down the north west side of Koh Lanta. Lots of fair-priced open air restaurants facing the beach. Great place to go for a stroll along the beach or have a swim. Beach was pristine during our visit (Dec 2016).

Very nice beach even in cloudy weather. White sand, calm waters and a few local restaurants on the waterfront to enjoy a cocktail and some food. What more could you want?

What a great beach. It's 4 kilometres in length and a good number of places where to eat and have drinks. Try the Tiwi Lay Thai restaurant great authentic Thai food. The sea off the beach is pristine although there are some rocks in places. The pull of the tides can be strong so small children must be accompanied at... More

It's a nice beach if you like to swim in the ocean and it's easy to get lunch etc when there is restaurants and bungalows along to beach.

Finally made it to the long beach, and had a massage by the ocean, then drinks and dinner at a local bar restaurant. Sunset was amazing. The water is warm, very little trash on the beach, plenty of really good resorts to eat or drink in. Great magical spot, especially at sunset and in the evening.

It's our second time here in November/December. The beach is clean except for tree and plant debris. The water is beautiful although there are bigger waves and a stronger current this year. There's plenty of bars and restaurants but it's still reasonably quiet and tranquil.

Although the beach is a quite narrow strip of sand (esp. during high tide), sunset is great. Each night, one the beach clubs will host a beach party.
