We visited Tanjung Rhu a couple times during our stay and found it undoubtedly the best beach on Langkawi. Also very easy to get away from the crowds to enjoy the peace and tranquility! Scenery is further improved by the mountainous & beautiful islands fronting Tanjung Rhu, and all part of the magnificent Kilim Karst Geoforest (National Park). We also... More

Worth a visit but might be quite a distance to travel. You should visit it the same time as you visit Langkawi Cable Car as it is kind of near by.

This is (with no doubt) the best and cleanest beach in Langkawi. The beach is beautiful. The only thing that bothered me a bit was the boats coming and going all the time. Stay away from the boats and you definitely will have a good time. If you rent the chairs (close to the resort) you can use the resort... More

Tanjung Rhu beach is situated on the North east corner of the island. We visited it on our circuit around the island and i must say in my opinion it's the best beach in Langkawi. It was completely secluded on the day we visited with only 3 other people .This is the beach that one would choose to be on... More

Tanjung Rhu Resort has access to what must be the cleanest and most amazing of beaches in Langkawi. We did not stay at this resort but went to the bar that's right on the beach and chilled out for quite some time. The beach is picture perfect and a must-visit for all travelers to Langkawi.

The beach is just beautiful. Unlike Pentai Cenang it's more calm and quiet. However, transport is not widely available, better to have the taxi wait for RM10/ hour and spend couple of hours there. Also there is no shadow on the whole beach so chose to go there before sunset unless you want to get sunburned.

Our family enjoyed a quick visit and swim on a stormy day. It is obvious why this beach is labelled as most beautiful on the island. There are kayaks to rent so a good thing to do on a quiet day as this is also the sea entrance to one of Langkawi's famous mangroves. The small islets off the beach... More
