Dirty water but good water sports

The water is not very clean here but the beach is a fun place as there are too many water sports happening around .

It was a very nice beach. It had a big waves we really enjoyed it. The street behind the beach got alot of resturants when you got hungry you can go on foot to have some food.

The beach was great but I feel there's too much activities and water sport going on which will endangered the people that swims.

although it is the biggest beach in Langkawi but it is not as nice and warm as expected. The entrance of the beach is very bad you to go through motels to find the beach behind

Great beach for kids or weak swimmers. A lot of water activities to choose from. The water is so warm, my dive computer says 31C. Watch out for the sharp shells, that beautiful white sand can be deceiving.

Used the beds by the yellow beach cafe, £2 each for a day, you can leave and come back. Stuff was safe while swimming. It was really quiet so beach was immense but we were informed over Christmas it is heaving, go in May, thunder storms at night but a secret paradise.

Like:Plenty of food & beverages, western as well as local delights. Dislike: You can see the beach from the road as hotels & Restaurant build just a few meters from the beach. What a shame

A pity that there seems to be little control on the quality of the building of Hotels of which some rather uninspiring ones have sprung up in the past few years. The whole place has an air of decline. Sometimes the beach is not very clean. One wonders whether there is a Sewage System to deal with the waste products... More

I visited in May and that's low season. So, it was easy for me to get away from people and boats on the beach. I can see how it would be overrun by tourists and boats if it was busy season. That being said, if you pop into some of the little local shops/restaurants, there's good value for money and... More
