Tanjung rhu beach was one of the best beach in langkawi. That also my day-off beach whereby you can see the beautiful scenery of 3 islands reminds me of Redang Island. The good thing about the beach is away from the hectic & busy of Kuah town or away from the people. Less noise pollution, good for those who would... More

So glad we went, this is the nicest beach I've ever been to. So secluded and the views are amazing. They only let a certain number of people in per day or at a time - you pass through a security area on the road to the beach which details this and tells you the dos and donts whilst on... More

A very peaceful beach! Experience fresh air and tranquility. Your Mangrove tour starts from here. The place is about 12 kms from Langkawi airport.

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
