If you're craving a white sand beach that's almost empty, Tanjong Rhu is your only bet in Langkawi. the waters are blue-green with limestone rock formations scattered in the horizon. The views are spectacular and is perfect to swim on the shore or just sunbathe with a book!

If you prefer quiet beach, tanjung rhu beach is the choice!! No over crowded like Cenang beach, but the sand in cenang beach is more softer than tanjung rhu. Beside the beach, there is a cafe called scarborough, they served very nice fish and chip and some cold beers! And there also have Naam - one of the best and... More

We stumbled upon this little gem entirely by accident, and it turned out to be one of the most beautiful places on earth! It is so quiet and peaceful, the beach is immaculate and the waters are lovely. But I kind of want to keep it a secret so it doesn't get too busy for my next visit :-)

A good part of the beach belongs to a resort and is not accessible for the public. However, if you move further (north-)east, there is still plenty of open space and even some trees that will give you shade. Water visibility was quite good and the beach was almost completely empty (early February). We stayed there for 2h after doing... More

fine white sand, Clear blue waters, awesome surroundings landscape. what else can you expect from a nice beach location, Tanjung Rhu has everything to offer. the approach road is private (maintained by resort) and you need to sign a small declaration at checkpoint but the beach is public. it is very less crowded than Cenang beach so you would have...

Clean beach with decent view providing you do not look at the large blot on the landscape which is the cement works! Unable to explore further along the stretch of beach as whilst it is not fenced off, security staff from the luxury hotel forbid you walk on their (empty!) beach.

This was the best beach we saw in Langkawi, it was clean with beautiful light sand. The views out to the archipelago dotted with smaller islands was outstanding. It was not crowded when we went, and probably because it is further away from the main tourist areas of Cenang and Kuah. Definitely a place to visit and spend some time... More
