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.
