Central Haad Phra Ae

The centre of the beach is more sparsely developed than the north or south, with only a small number of midrange to luxury resorts along the beach and out by the main road. A large beachfront park and Lanta's most exclusive resort help to keep the atmosphere quiet. Expect a solid walk to the main-road restaurants if staying here.

Northern Haad Phra Ae

While a couple of flashpacker to midrange spots are thrown in, the northern stretch of beach is best known for its tightly packed backpacker village. You'll find over a dozen cheap bungalow joints that are stacked one on top of the next. The atmosphere livens up at night, meaning that going to bed before 2:00 in the morning can be difficult.

    As the northernmost resort on Long Beach, Sayang enjoys a somewhat isolated location that's far enough from the beach bars to stay quiet at night but close enough to join the party when the mood ... Read the full review of Sayang Beach Bungalows.

Southern Haad Phra Ae

Long Beach's southern area boasts a very good selection of budget to midrange places to stay, with at least a dozen small resorts packed in tight between the beach and the main road. Also home to several plush private villas and apartments, the area has plenty of great eating and drinking options.

Haad Baan Phruklom

Just south of Long Beach proper, the often-overlooked Baan Phruklom beach is a great choice for those seeking a cheap bungalow to go with a relaxed atmosphere that feels like a toned-down Haad Khlong Khong. The beach has a few simple restaurants and bars, and southern Long Beach's much greater selection is about 15 minutes away on foot.
