If you are not staying at the hotels along the beach, you need to register with the guards to enter the beach. They seem to have a limited no. of outside guests allowed in order to maintain the peace and quiet there I suppose. We spent the evening here, enjoying the cool water and mesmerising sunset. It was drizzling further... More

Tanjung Rhu lies at the northernmost tip of the island. The beach is clean, secluded and private for the resort here. Water is calm and clear. The sea here is shallow. Casuarina trees line the beach. A lovely place to relax.

This beach is mostly a private beach, leased to Tanjung Rhu Resort. Public are only allowed on right-corner of 2.5km beach. History is Resort owners spent lots of money laying millions of tonned of sand in 1995. Also, beach is cleaned by Resort staff each morning. Hence, Resort security guards do not allow public to approach near resort side. Water... More

loved the privacy as it is miles away from the busy bees, an added bonus would be the white sands and best sunsets you could ever hope for.

Not my favourite beach on Langkawi but definitely worth a visit. We hired a car and drove around the entire island and made a stop here having heard it was beautiful, and I'm glad we did. However I think you'd need to be staying at the hotel to enjoy this beach properly. The sand is pure white and we found... More

There's still a stretch of public beach ,where... More

Located quite far at the north of Langkawi but worth to visit, the long nice white sand beach with greeny island and turquoise water make a perfect picture. better visiting in the morning since at noon the heat become unbearable.

We stayed a bit further down from the resort an had a lovely quiet spot. I went jogging up the beach an it was very quiet and clean.There's not much there apart from a big resort, a fish restaurant and a lovely place to stay called Labu Labi. Worth a few days here if you like the peace which we... More
