The beach was lovely and had an array of water sports activities to choose from. During the day, it was bustling with life and laughter and had a nice romantic feel to it at night with pubs playing music and people dancing under the moonlight.

Beautiful beach with neat public toilets. There are many eating joints on the beach which usually open after 1. Water sports can be done here, many vendors are around. The shacks come alive after sunset with fire shows, music and sheesha available. Parking available.

We are also in your age group. We enjoyed walking Cenang beach as it was mostly empty. We don't know the other beach you mention.

I assume you want to do this whilst you use the beach, so I would suggest you go to the main road that runs parallel to the beach and ask there. I am pretty sure there are facilities there.
