It's a nice, open and clean beach. There's Alot of activity allows at here, Jet Ski, Parasailing, Corns, Redtube, banana boat, etc. The powdery light sand will let you feel comfortable when you walk on it. You will found there's not crowded in the morning time but Yes for evening time, probably after 3pm. Who wish to maintain fair skin,... More

I spent a day here recently. The beach was nice and clean and peaceful with only a handful of people about and some people out on jet skis. A great beach for relaxing on without any hassle or distractions or else to go for a nice long walk along. From the beach you can take jet ski tours to explore... More

Very disappointed and shocked to see motor vehicles, bulldozers all over the beach. Yes I am not joking, its there! My partner was taking picture of the beautiful scenery and a pick up drove right in front of him along the edge of the water just few feet away from him. Well, I will just leave that to your imagination!... More

Having travelled all round the island, I would say that Cenang Beach is the best beach in Langkawi (unless you want totally deserted with no facilities). Where we stayed, Casa del Mar, it is at the quiet end . .

The most famous beach on Langkawi and of course with a lot of people. The sand is not in good quality compared to other world-level beaches because they allow vehicles to be driving onto the sand. Okay for a sunbath and a little swim.

Cenang is a long white strech of sandy beach. The water is shallow, no rocks, no stones, just sand! Hence its great for a swim. Its not secluded, but since I travel alone I prefer some liveliness around. Mind that I was at Cenang during shoulder season, with not that many tourists. I imagine that it can be too crowded...
