Beautiful beach, hardly anybody around, very private. Stunning view of the nearby rock formations and islands. Perfect place to getaway from the crowds. Strict beach regulations. Water was clean, clear and warm. Nice to swim. Hardly any shade around except for some casuarina trees. Very hot sun. Bring lots of sunblock, water, drinks and snack. You will love it here!... More

Beautiful clean beach which quite often has very few people on it. Access is through a barrier (to keep rowdy crowds out as it's part of a private beach). Local and western food available from beach side restaurants. You have to leave by 7pm (I think)

Breath-Taking view of all the famous islands of Langkawi from this beach! Don't miss it! The ride to this place (if you are having a rental car) makes the experience even more beautiful!

30 mins drive from Pantai Cenang Beach. This beach is just quiet (opposite of Pantai Cenang beach where it's very crowded), where you can relax and enjoy the view of the sunset. When you visit this beach, you must at least spend time walking the entire beach shore. There's an exclusive resort nearby, but staying in Langkawi, the best is... More

This beach is absolutely amazing when it comes to beauty. Swimming tho, unfortuntely the water has alot of currents. Sunbathing can also be a problem becuas there is a lack of shade. The islands in the sea makes this a perfect beach for photographers. If you are looking to be alone and contemplate; this is the perfect beach for you!

Tanjung Rhu is a quiet and pristine beach on the northern part of Langkawi island. There are two beaches, one for water sports and the other for relaxing. The major part of the beach is occupied by the Tanjung Rhu resort and they have some rules which you have to follow to be on that beach. Most of them aimed... More

Right on the north-eastern tip of Langkawi is found a lovely resort known as Tanjung Rhu, straddling pure white sand and river front mangrove banks- which are the setting-off points for many water based adventures. This was our pick of the five star resorts, although a little secluded for access to other activities. Hiring a car and/or driver would be... More
