This is a very busy beach with lots of sunbeds, loud music and beach bars. Probably good for young people who want to enjoy lots of activities.

I strongly suggest Pantai Cenang. One of the reason because it is so happening especially in the evening/night. There are lots of activities you can do by the beach in the afternoon (from 3-7pm -if i not mistaken) such as, banana boat, jet ski, paraglider and etc. At night, there are lots of people hanging out by the beach. And... More

The place is nicely surrounded by several hotel, food joints etc. It offers a complete experience of a peaceful beach. The market around is very nice and you can shop till you die and eat like king till you sleep on the table. Must visit place and you can good prices for nice stuff as well.

Wished I had bought my togs/bathing suit as when we walked in the water it was very warm and clean. As is the beach - no rubbish at all. Would have to be careful of jetskis when swimming as they seem to have the run of the water. Lovely setting with several small idyllic islands so near yet so far.

Went to the beach in the noon, evening and also at night. Of course you will feel comfortable in the evening and night. You can see some fire performances during the night. It's a nice place to chill with friends with just some bottles of drinks.

This is the party place of Langkawi... Loud music and great shacks / restaurants. You could do water sports here at a reasonable cost. This place is usually crowded and have many options. It is like North Goa or Kuta in Bali...

This place is public, you have to watch out that certain areas got jet skis. It was hot with many people because it was the holidays. Souvenirs in this area is so expensive if compare to Kuah town.

A really nice beach, good for swimming, lots of water sports. Great spot for sunsets. We got beach loungers for free when we bought a drink from a beach bar. Nice enough beach if you are staying in cenang, but there was some really stunning beaches and sites to be seen if you grab a motorbike and go exploring.
