It is a shame at the moment that building work is going on. Building of hotels and work on the main road making walking difficult in parts. Otherwise when this is finished the resort is great, Plenty of eateries, shops etc. Laid back evenings.

It's getting more like a highway than a beach. The beach itself tho is lovely, clean and wide so never really crowded. The negative is the amount of traffic dropping off boats and jet skis etc, would be good to ban the lot in my opinion

Surrounded by hotels, duty-free shops, restaurants and cafes. It's one of the most happening beaches in Langkawi. There're some night activities such as bon fire and fire dances at the beach.

If you're looking for a beach with very crystal clear water, don't expect to find it that Cenang. This is a busier beach along a touristy strip of restaurants.

It was nice beach to swim and it was beautiful the only set back there was no washroom to change the place we were.There was tiny place covered with zink and a shower, the set back. I hope the public toilets are ready by now.
