The island's scenery is marked by steep rocky headlands (on the northeastern coast) and wide, soft-sand beaches (on the southwestern coast). To the west of Clarence Town is located Dean's Blue Hole -  world's second-deepest underwater sinkhole (after South China Sea's hole / 300 m) with depth ~660 ft (~200 m). The coastal scenery is highlighted by small bays, scenic inlets and offshore cays (small islands). One main road runs north-south - from Cape Santa Maria Beach Resort (Galliot Cay) to Gordon's Settlement (Gordon's Beach). On-island transportation is limited to taxis.

As cruise port, Long Island was for the first time included in the 2022's schedule of the superyacht SeaDream 2. Next table shows the 7-day itinerary from Puerto Rico to Florida.

Long Island's economy is based on tourism, commercial fishing and export-oriented cattle farming (pigs, chickens, goats, sheep). Tourism-related activities include sail boating, deep-sea fishing, scuba diving, snorkelling, freediving (at Dean's Blue Hole). Cape Santa Maria Beach is ranked as one of the world's most beautiful.

Most tourists arrive via small plane charters or via commercial flights from Exuma Airport (Great Exuma Island, northwest of George Town) or directly from Nassau. On Long Island are located two airports serving domestic flights only - Deadman's Cay Airport (Bahamasair) and Stella Maris Airport (Pineapple Air, Southern Air Charter).
