Beach is tranquil and very clean. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Langkawi. The shallow water stretches out quite far and it's quite enjoyable to just sit in the ocean and enjoy the view. However you would need a car to get there.

If you have a car while in Langkawi, I would highly recommend this beach. It takes you through the rural side of Langkawi and not a long drive. The beach is quiet but VERY clean. There are some small shops for snacks or even a place where you can book water sports activities. Good location for some perfect pictures.

This beach has 2 or 3 ramshackle little cafés where you can have a snack and a drink before walking along the beach and checking out the scenery. It's not much of a swimming beach but is an easy drive from any of the hotels and you get to see some of the Langkawi countryside on the way.

I happened to go to Tanjung Rhu since I had a car that I had rented and my family just loves driving around. The beach is very clean and very quiet. I went there in the evening at around 5pm and there were very few people around. One vendor had a stall where he was renting out some water scooters... More

Park the car by the beach and enjoy the cool breeze coming from the sea. Scarborough Fish and Chips is just nearby.

Good beach. Go slightly further to four seasons and the beach there is simply the best in Langkawi. This is only if they allow you to come in through the resort (I am not sure if there is a public entry to beach). Or else, try out a beach facing restaurant in Four Seasons

The view at Tanjung Rhu is just magnificent, very beautiful sea & beach view, good for swimming. The only downside was the sand, too rough, unlike other beaches in Langkawi (Beras Basah & Pantai Cenang). There's not many people too, no water sport activity, which is a good thing. Definitely worth a visit if you are in langkawi.

My husband & I hired a car for the day & decided to visit this beach. I'm so glad that we did! It was spectacular & very secluded. We had to sign an agreement before entering the beach as it's privately owned, but that was no bother. Definitely worth the drive.

Tanjung Rhu Beach ... it ... was ... magnificent. And ... practically empty??? Only issue was that there's no shade so, with my lily white skin, it had to be kept short and sweet. But, it's undoubtedly up there as one of the best beaches on the island.

you will have the beach for yourselves. Bit far from Kuah or Cenang area. Worth visiting of you are having your own transport
