We visited this island during island hopping. We arrived at this island at around noon, and it was very hot but still very beautiful. At that time, the island was already full of tourists. Monkeys targeted bags without surveillance. So take care of your bags...More

It was not the same beach I went 15 years ago. It is crowded. Many boats planned this island as part of their trip and it is scattered with tourists. Monkeys on the island keep stealing food/drinks from the visitors. Avoid bringing food or swinging...More

The beach was very nice and clean regarding the sand and water. The coconut trees near the sea would remind us of the people who could be trapped in that island like Tom Hanks character in Cast Away movie.

NO it is better to take your own. There is a small shop on the island but when we visited it was closed.

Transportation to Beras Basah island (2 Replies)
Hello, me and my wife are going to Langkawi this August and I was wondering if there is any boat service that takes you to Beras Basah island (just Beras Basah, not included in island hopping tours). I can't find any information regarding this. Thank you very much

Dear Stavros, go to the Teluk Baru, near Awana Porto Malay. Negotiate there for a longboat. Anything from 60 to 80 RM one way. Ask for Pak One. Eva

Going to Langkawi with Baby (2 Replies)
Hi! I will be going to Langkawi this week with a 3.5 month old baby. We are just wondering if the half-day tour (Pregnant Maiden’s Island, Singa Island and Beras Basah Island) will be suitable for the baby? Also, what activities do you recommend for us to do while we have our baby with us? Thanks! :)

In my opinion, no its not suitable to bring a 3 month old baby on the island hopping tour.

Hello. I am visiting with my wife in Feb. We would like to snorkel. Have got bad reviews about Palau Payar plus it takes a whole day. Can we snorkel at Beras Barah during the island hopping tour itself?

Dear Hemil, don't expect too much at Basar. There is a small reef that I have seen but that goes 5 years back. Payar indeed can be disappointing. Koh Lipe is an alternative. For Langkawi my slogan is that the beauty of the archipelago is above the water line. I had an engine problem yesterday as a plastic bag blogged the cooling water inlet of my boat and I had to dive down. The visibility was less than one meter. But I admit that was around Kuah Bay and this area is certainly not as...More
