Clean, prickly sand and lack waves (I was informed that the waves are better mid year) and it was also rainy during the time I visited so could have been better. The sea ground also feels a little sticky and mush when stepped on. I love the beach but it was a little disappointing compared to the other beaches that... More

Some parts of the beach are actually quite rough with many seashells... not exactly the powdery sand I was looking forward to. There are many water sports vendors so be careful to choose one that is safe and reputable. Can get quite dark at night

We had a morning stroll here on our last day. It was a pity that we didn't come here earlier. We enjoyed the scenery a lot. My babies are really happy to be so close to the ocean. The gently breeze that caressed our faces made the whole trip really, really memorable.

This is the most beautiful sand I have ever seen (I'm from canada) the water is warm and plenty of happy people, however... The amount of jet ski's and other flying, floating or land mechanics litter the beach with engine sounds.

Quite OK and clean. The waves was friendly even though it was a rainy season. On sunset time, the beach will be packed with people.

The Beach is special and must be one of the best in the world. However, you must watch when you get into the water as a few people got stung by jellyfish.

What more could you want from Cenang Beach. There were plenty of places to hire gear for an action packed afternoon or if you feel like sitting in the cafes, they are right on the beach with sand underfoot and a cool drink in hand. Even hammock seats for those wanting to nod off... The water was warm and very... More

The beach was clean and the water was amazing except you need to watch out for giant jelly fish that can cause a problem

Visited this beach only once as it was very much as expected; too many noisy jet skis and screaming kids.

The beach outside the Meritus Pelangi Resort was wide and flat and great for sunbathing. However some parts of the beach are covered with bits of broken shells and small stones, which made walking barefoot quite unpleasant. The water also was not as clear as further up north, around Nong Thale beach at Krabi. Perhaps it was just not the... More
