Easy access, many types of water sports, local and international restaurants,everything in one place. Chenang mall is a new attraction here other than coffee spot with Starbucks and secret recipe are now available. You can purchase island hop and mangrove tour package here. The most happening spot where people chill at night. Fire show and lantern are among the activities.

Dont miss the aquaworld in Pantai Cenang and the cenang beach in langkawi. During night all the pubs on the shore will play live music. Its a very good experience to watch all those and have a long walk along the beach side.

the beach is nice but somehow i dont like the sand. its quite compressed as bikes and jeeps go on it loads of time. it looks very relaxing but lying there on the beach, i find the noise of scooters and jeeps very annoying.

There are a lot of tax free shopping areas nearby. The underwater world is right next to the biggest shopping mall in the area.

Beach not clean. Jet ski operators like Cowboys from Wild West. Not safe. Parasailing from the beach. Saw many accidents. Police do nothing? Guests no protection.

If you look out to the horizon and view sunset through clouds and islands in distance is truly lovely. Look down to the rubbish at your feet and hear the scream of the jet skis is sad. Seems to be no pride here. Felt like getting a rake and cleaning! Not safe for walking after dark due to rubbish.

We stayed on the other side of the island as it was far cheaper. There are a wide range of shops, cafes and restaurants etc located here and ideal for those who don't want to hire a car as everything is very close.
