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

The beaches in Langkawi aren't the the silky white sand and clear turquoise seas of Thailand, but they were warm and lovely. We did see quite a few jelly fish and you had to be careful not to cut your feet on the little crabby shells which you couldn't see underfoot because the water wasn't clear. It's much more touristy... More

This place is the worst area of Langkawi. Just a street of touristy tat shops and building sites. It made me worry for Langkawi's future with all the high rise buildings going up. Beach was ok though and nicely shallow for kids
