    Phra-Ae Beach - Koh Lanta



    Also known as Phra-Ae Beach, the aptly named Long Beach is the longest beach on Ko Lanta, approximately 3 kilometres in length and is the second beach south of the pier, after Klong Dao Beach. Long Beach is beautiful, the water slightly deeper than at Klong Dao beach and there are no rocks -- just soft sand fantastic for confident swimmers. Though the entire length of the beach is great, the northern end, up next to the rocky headland is particularly cozy with some shady spots under tall casuarina trees.





    The main road runs about 300m behind the beach with small roads running to the bungalows along the beach. There are plenty of shops along the road with small food stalls, a 7/11, ATM, email cafes, laundry services, motorbike hire and a couple of good restaurants.

    Am I right in thinking that Kho Lanta was hit by the tsunami? If so, has the damage been sorted?

    I must get down there next year - in the mean time I will have to put up with the newly opened beach in Brick Lane.

    It was hit by the tsunami but I was there last summer, 2005 and it was pretty well cleaned up. I am sure its back in full swing now. I prefer Klong Dao beach.

    Actually I would prefer Raillay to Lanta. Lanta was just too damn dry.
