We stayed in an Airbnb condo complex that was a very short walk to Long Beach. The beach is flat and very soft sand for walking a long distance for exercise. The water was fairly warm depending on the day. If it was high tide...More

Wondering where the good reviews are coming from. Terrible Beach. You cant swim because of all the rocks. Honestly the worst beach I have ever been.

I had a Christmas Day sunset here and it was just gorgeous. Although hundreds come out onto the beach, the two mile long stretch means everyone is spread out in small, relaxed, friendly groups so it doesn't feel crowded at all. There are loads of...More

A huge stretch of sand as the name implies. There are many restaurants and bars on this beach and the sunsets are simply stunning. Safe to bathe here. It makes for a great walk but is too hot mid-day.

Phra Ae beach or Long Beach is a 4 kilometre stretch of white sand and surf. I had returned from Patong Beach (Phuket) and Bangkok and it’s inherent craziness so Phra Ae was a welcome relief. Stayed at the Sayang Beach Bungalows at the north...More

One of the best beaches I’ve ever been to. beats the Maldives and Caribbean. Warm water, calm but with tidal waves. Just a beautiful place.

Simply stunning, especially in low season. We travelled the full island. Personally I would always come back and stay at hotel near this beach. Great bars and restaurants on beach front. Just use trip advisor to find the best ones.

This is a fabulous beach and the views absolutely breathtaking. As its name suggests it is very long but the sand is consistently beautiful and white. The sea is very calm and we saw lots of small children able to play. There are plenty of...More

Sorry for making you wait so long. Did not see your question. Long beach is in Koh Lanta which is a view hours by boat away from Krabi... not just around the corner...
