This little beach is the best on the island. It was a lot quieter than the pictures suggest. 2RM entry (about 40p) but it's to keep the beach clean...and it is clean. It can be difficult to get a taxi here, because there isn't any phone or signal, but it can be found easily with a scooter if you hire... More

The entry fee for the beach is 2RM, being charged by a hotel on the beach. The beach as such is clean, but the region isn't known for its sand I guess. The water is moderately clear, but clean. There's a small place that serves rice and little sea food as well, which was moderately priced. The public facilities at... More

As said in other review, this is the best kept secret. It's amazing because other part (and less beautiful) part of the Langkawi very overly crowded while this place was always calm and peaceful. There is a little bar whit very good food and the ticket of 2 RM allows the beach to stay clean and not trashy as others... More

This beach is hard to locate if you are not familiar with its location. But it is sooo nice. The beach is small, located in a protected cove. The water is clean and clear, the white sand is powderly with no shells! The beach provides lots of shade. There is a concession stand a few meters from the water, and... More

This beach has now been handed over to a resort operator (Mona Resorts) who has a few chalets there and they are now collecting RM2 per person for access to the beach. This is supposedly as they clean the beach and maintain the public facilities. Previously the access was free and you pay RM1 to use the shower facilities which... More

The beach is located 1/2 hours drive from Cenang on the north east side of Langkawi just follow the direction to Dantai (Dantai is a private beach at the end of the road). It's easy to pass it as you can only see a parking space next to the road. Which is great, because it makes the beach a quiet... More

Pasir Tengkorak is wonderful - a small bay with fine sand and it is somewhat shaded. What I would like d here is to warn people that a woman who is the cleaner of the public toilet, places a table at the gate and collects entrance fee from unsuspecting visitors. This is a PUBLIC beach. Visitors need NOT pay anyone... More

Visited this beach back in Dec 2013. It's on the way to the Andaman/Datai, you need to look for a parking lot on the right. I believe this is the best beach on the main island of Langkawi, actually better than Datai Bay itself as it has very clear waters unlike other beaches on the main island. Quite a number... More

The beach is located away from the more touristy beaches of Langkawi and is located along the north coast of the island. The beach is clean and is great for swimming. There are no sporting activities which adds to the charm of the beach. It is a 30 mins drive away from Pantai Cenang and is not crowded. Good place... More
