Beaches on Langkawi

Burau Bay

This stunning beach lined with rocky outcrops is located at the West Coast of Langkawi. Several world-class hotels operate in this area which offers a peaceful and tranquil environment for relaxation and quiet meditation. The near-by Burau island is also a roosting place for migratory birds – a treasure trove for bird-watchers.

There are other great beaches in Langkawi for you to visit some of the best are listed below:

Pantai Cenang

The most popular beach in Langkawi is fine, white grains of sand that don't stick to you. Delightful coconut trees and elegant casuarinas line the 2 km stretch of sand with resorts and chalets in between.

Pantai Tengah

Pantai Tangah is separated from Cenang Beach by a small cape but retains the same quality of sand yet is much more peaceful. You can rent boats to visit near-by islands or paddle around the shore in canoes and catamarans.

Pantai Kok

A beautiful sweeping bay, Pantai Kok may be relatively far, but the pay-off is ultimate seclusion in a beautiful, serene beach. Limestone hills with mysterious caves can be explored here with the help of a guide.

Pantai Pasir Hitam

As the name means ‘Black Sand’, this is an unusual beach with a strange colouration. The sand is mixed in white and black shades, giving the illusion of pollution. On the contrary, the rich tin and mineral deposits (iron ore) in the area wash up on the shore constantly, creating that false notion.

Tanjung Rhu

Tanjung Rhu, located in the north, is also known as the ‘Casuarina Beach’ for its abundance of Casuarina trees rather than the usual palms and coconuts. Tanjung Rhu is sheltered by the curve of the bay while its waters are shallow and warm. Life here is low, relaxed and soothing, perfect for a therapeutic getaway. During the low tide, it is also possible to walk across a sandbank to some nearby islands; Pulau Pasir and Pulau Gasing.

Datai Bay

Hidden by a tropical rainforest, the Datai Bay offers an exclusive retreat for the rich and famous. Some of the country’s most expensive resorts are located here. The secluded beach in the bay offers beautiful scenery. You can also explore the surrounding tropical rainforest and admire the gems of Malaysia’s natural heritage.
