The beach is very clean and offers good swimming when it's safe - there are a lot of activities - banana boat rides, jet ski, para gliding - along with a variety of boat trips which include island hopping - the beach is very busy at one end and gets quieter the further you walk / the sand is white...

No trip to Langkawi is complete without a visit to Cenang Beach. Spectacular views and a nice soft sand.

This is good beach. Very neat n clean. People can enjoy here with family n group. Very clear water. But if u think to take any thing to eat, u will get nothing. So its better to have some snacks chips on ur way rather than there high price.

Dirty water, commercial operators everywhere with jet skis and banana boats, poor standard sun beds and crappy sand. The local town is full of cafes, spas, hotels and restaurants. Not many bars. A poor mans version of any well known Thiland resort beach, more like an Indian affair.

It's the place you want to go and enjoy during evening. Lots of beach activities with many hotels, restaurants and cafes are just in walk away distance.

물이 맑지 않고, 해변가에 삐끼들이 정말 많아요. 결국 파라세일링을 하기로 하고 돈을 지불했더니 다른 해변으로 저희를 데려갔습니다. 아무말도 없이 앉아있으라길래 언제쯤 할 수 있냐고 물으니 15분정도 기다리라고 하더니, 결국 두시간정도 기다리게 했습니다. 거짓말을 한 것에 대해 화가 나서 취소하고 환불받았어요. 두시간만 날린 꼴이네요. i expected clear and blue water, but it isn't at all. i wanted to try parasailing and... More

We visited Pantai Cenang just a few days ago on our way back from Europe to NZ. We were after for a relaxing beach holiday and good food, but did not really got either. The whole area is at the moment like a big construction site, there are both building construction and infrastructure work going on making the place difficult... More
