Beach Long translated from English means “long beach”, although why it is long – I did not understand. Tonsai and Lo Dalam much longer even visually. Long Beach is located on the inhabited Island – Phi Phi Don (Phi Phi Ley is considered uninhabited).
The beach is located in the south of the island and is probably the most nearest beach to Phi Phi Town, where you can normally and fully swim. The only difference from the rest beaches, in my opinion – this is straightforward. Long Beach is the only one There is no elegant curve of the coastline – it is straight as a stick. Beautiful, quiet, but completely ordinary tourist beach, without raisins.

Plain tourist beach. The length of the long beach is something about 650 meters, the width of the strip of sand varies from 10 to 25 meters, on average. The sand is soft, medium grain, not flour, but still very pleasant. When it dries, it acquires light yellow shade, but not white.
Around the center of the beach are constantly parked a lot of boats, who are gradually reeling in the afternoon. Are standing they are also in other parts of Long Beach, and it looks like a stocking from boats and the web of their mooring lines is the common misfortune of all the beaches on the islands. Phi Phi.
Opposite some resorts, ropes and floats are fenced off the water area of the beach where the boatmen can not swim. It seems to be care about the guests, but it looks somehow sad.
Entry, depth and waves
The slope of the coast in this part of Phi Phi Don is perceptibly steep, so the earth goes under water at such an angle that the depth increases in the tide is fast, after 5 meters it will be in the neck.
At low tide, I did not see this beach, but I suppose that, like all beaches on the island of Phi Phi Don, it becomes less bubbly, but not enough to not go into the sea at all.
Because of the depth, waves happen here, so in some places on Long Beach built stone breakwaters (there is a photo at the end of the post), which Slightly spoil the overall aesthetics of the beach. The bottom is clean but uneven: напротив Phi Phi Paradise Pearl Resort , и P.P. Blue Sky Resort Phi Phi камни под водой очень близко к берегу.
Sun beds and shade
Many hotels have their own sun beds, and only for their own – about This is advertised on the beach. But in some hotels you can rent a lounger for 100 baht.
The shore is teeming with vegetation, but the natural shadow disappears. after lunch and on the public beach there are literally a couple of places where you can hide under the trees, if you are not a guest of one of resorts
Resorts have their own forest plantations, but others aren’t even allowed there for money. In general, Long Beach is a purely resort town, with a wealth of beach amenities and pleasures that are available for the most parts for permanent guests here.
Beach Long Beach Phi Phi Don Island
People who stop here, purposefully give priority beach rest, while always having the opportunity to get to the more lively places of the island because the boats ply constantly. Also, I understand that some hotels have their own own taxi-boat.
In addition to hotels and cafes restaurants from resorts here nothing more not. Instead of the second line here is a forest and jungle. As far as I understand, here all go exactly along the shore. You can also go on the road through mountainous part of the island, but the path will be longer and physical culture.
Near the beach, about a hundred meters from the coast is Shark Point is a reef where you can watch sharks. I do not know how often there are sharks, but boats bring people there regularly.
Houses and hotels on the beach
The entire first line of Long Beach is occupied by resorts of different pricing. categories and stars. On Long Beach, many tourists stop for a long time, only occasionally getting out on a boat to Phi Phi Town or on a tour of the islands around. Private houses for rent here no, as on the rest of Phi Phi Don.
Hotels, according to visitors, on average have a rating higher than on the same Tonsai or Lo Dalame. Of the most popular and rated hotels on Long Beach I would recommend paying attention to these two. The second is even more preferable because the best stretch of beach with a clean bottom is located.
