Tanjung Rhu actually is a part of private beach managed by 5 stars hotels there, but common tourists were still allowed to enter the beach. So you will need to register yourself when you get into the complex. The water was green, the sand was white. It's not a hustle bustle beach as in Chenang Beach. It's a great place... More

Very sunny with little shade, but best beach in Langkawi. As its next to a resort, the security guard will make you sign a form with rules and regulations to follow. Must leave the beach by 7pm

On the last day of our trip we planned to go for Snorkling but we cancelled as my wife was not too much excited about it. So we explored Trip Advisor and finalized to go to this place. Very nice, clean and peaceful beach. No public at all. When we reached there were hardly 10-15 people around. You can swim... More

This place was much better before. The "pokok rhu" there is getting less and less attractive. But make sure you visit to Tanjung Rhu Resort here, it will amazed you.

Only a small part of the beach is open to public. Not many people come to this beach as it is quite far from town, and very quiet too. Not many activities here, hardly any shops around. It would be ideal to bring your own food for a picnic here. That being said, my friends and I had a great... More

Hired a taxi for 40 RM from cenang beach, amazing drive to the beach with amazing mountains and beaches. The beach is quaint, not crowded and shallow. We walked 1 km into the water and it was just till our hips. One of the clear water beaches in langkawi. Might want to carry your own beer and snacks as this... More

Good place for swim and sea sports. Clean beach with soft white sand..ideal for a day by the sea. There was a kiosk renting mini trucks for a 45-min drive to the village nearby at Rm199. Didn't rent cos found the prices expensive.

A lovely, curvy mountain road up (if you like driving), but only a rather dull centre up top. Don't go if it's cloudy/rainy, as the views will be affected.
