Enjoying "long walks on the beach," like candle light dinners, is a romantic activity stereotypically associated with dating and with profiles for online dating sites.
When people mention long walks on the beach, they generally refer to something within the span of a couple of hours - something that would happen on a single date or evening. Randall's definition ostensibly would take place over tens, dozens, or hundreds of miles, spanning far outside the range of what most people would consider normal. The joke is that he is going for a hike that takes place at least over 2 days, hence requiring the overnight use of a tent.
The title text says everyone who says they like long walks on the beach is being disingenuous, or not forthcoming. He just wants someone who wants what he does; to walk an indefinite, indeterminate distance well beyond the comfort and expectations of everyone else.

- Randall: Hi, my name is Randall. I like candlelight dinners and long walks on the beach.
- Randall: When I say long walks on the beach, I mean LONG walks on the beach. I've met people through these services who CLAIM to like long walks on the beach. But we'll be out there barely an hour before they start in with "I'm tired" and "Don't you think it's time we head back?" BRING A TENT.
