Long Beach remains the most famous coastal area on the island. The beach takes more than 7 km, so it’s not hard to find a good place to settle. This beach is well maintained and cleaned all year round.
As the infrastructure of Long Beach evolves in every season, it now has everything needed for a comfortable stay. There are many popular hotels and restaurants nearby, but tourists should remember that this season is quite crowded during peak season.
The steep bottom is one of the main disadvantages of Long Beach. The depth of the water is only 2 meters from the shore already 2 meters away, so this beach is not the best choice for tourists with young children.
-Ong Lang Beach
Ong Lang Beach is more preferred by families. The water fit close to the shore and is transparent and clean.
There are many palm trees not far from the water, so Ong Lang remains comfortable enough for holidaymakers to always sit in the shade of trees, even in the middle of a hot day.
