Paragliding on Cenang Beach was breathtaking. Took a small boat by one of the operators to the other side of the beach. We were 2 senior ladies and we were a bit scared for the landing, but no need. The guys were experts

If a quiet bay laced with white sand, swaying palms and clear water is your wish, be sure to head to the beaches on the opposite side of the island. Cenang strip and beach has all the sights and SMELLS of a mini Pattaya,Thailand experience. It does have the islands main collection of low and mid priced accommodation and an... More

Pantai Cenang has a breathtaking view. An escape from the busy life in the city and workloads will be at best at Pantai Cenang. There are watersports activities can be done and there are markets and a mall near to this beach (walking distance). Stay at hotels near to Pantai Cenang as you can easily go to the beach anytime...

Everything you need in one place. Plenty of shopping, Although the duty free is mainly alcohol and home wares. The usual fair McDonalds, Subway etc and the street stalls are plentiful and on the most part clean. If you have been to Bali I liken it to a cleaner bali.

Cenang beach is a beautiful long stretching beach, where you can do a variety of water activities on hire from the shore. However, walking along the street running parallel to the beach, you will be hit by the stench of the sewers which vent up on to the pavements. A local guide said to avoid the water as the sewage...

Can be busy with 'sports' activities but still very nice beach. Some nice restaurants and bar along the beach. Sea clean but murky, but that is everywhere.

Thought the rates offered for either jet-skiing, banana boat ride and other water sports are competitive as compared to other locations. Plenty of shops for souvenir hunting, filling up the stomachs are dotted on both flanks of the main street.
