No doubt at all that this is a great beach and if we were in our teens or 20s we would probably have loved it. However, this is not a place for peace and quiet and therefore not for us. We were spoiled I guess, staying on Detai Beach which was wonderful.

We visited there in day and night, night time was really beautiful since you can hear the waves in the shore while small shops have setup places for quick bites to eat and... More

This is a nice place to visit. Not just he beach but the promenade as well. There are many shops, pubs, restaurants just whatever you want you will find there. The beach was nice, no trash, water was clear. The only thing I did not like were the jet skies in swimming areas. These attractions should be separated from swimming... More

Most busiest beach in langkawi. However, if you have been to goa, and compare the beaches than you will find it the most secluded one :P. But No doubt, this beach has the most awesome view. Beautiful turquoise green blue color water. Islands that you can view from this beach. And the most important is to view the sunset at... More

Not only that, there are also booths for water/land activities and island hop tours that can be easily book from. Great place for all ages n those... More

They are many water related activities that are available at the beach. You can play the jetski, parasailing, banana boat or just enjoy the scenery

Try the yello bar with single hammocks swinging on to the beach. Princes good (as anywhere on Langkawi) and friendly staff. Decent live music.

Nearly all the major hotels are here. It's very convenient. Food aplenty. A shopping mall, the Cenang Mall nearby All within walking distance although the entire Cenang Street is 3 km long.

This beach has everything,if you want jet skis and banana boat rides then head in one direction,if it's peace & tranquility then head up the other end by the Meritus Resort,turn the corner slightly and it's deserted. Lovely clean white sand and warm sea. Wait till the end of the day and admire the perfect sunset. Signs were up warning... More
