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

I think this might literally be the prettiest beach I've been to, though maybe not the "best" (Shoal Bay on Anguilla wins that). The landscape is gorgeous, but I think it runs down the island a bit and a lot of people don't go past the security checkpoint and hang out at the part of the beach where the (delicious)... More

Lovely beach out of the way, but spoilt by boats coming in and out all of the time and shattering your peace. A nice little cafe to eat and drink but starting to get commercialise with sun beds and umbrellas on the lovely sandy beach and people trying to sell you island trips. 3 years ago it was such a...

We got here on a rented motorbike (from Tokman Inn in Pantai Cenang 50 RM for two days), passed the security check point with a "we're going to the boat jetty". There's a boat jetty here, where you can take a boat through the mangroves (we were offered 180 RM for two hours but declined as it was just about... More

White sands and fantastic view. Try to go to four season resort and ask for renting a table in order to have a drink, most of the time there is no table available for outsiders but you can ask the hotel staff if you can see the beach and they will be more than happy to let you in. The... More

Drove here on our around the island route. Needed to go on private road through a security checkpoint. Beautiful beach with limestone islands, mouth of river with mangroves. Only 2 other groups on beach when we were there in June 2015.

One of the best places in Langkawi. The beach is pristine with white sand and mangroves around. Its a restricted area and very well maintained. Far away in the ocean, one can see the islands of southern Thailand as well. Absolutely relaxing and quiet, I would highly recommend this beach.
