This beach is smaller and has slightly less people. It gets deep pretty fast, so take care. No toilet on the beach.

We visited the island as part of the island tour. The beach is clean and well looked after. Watch out for all the monkeys. They will open any unattended bags and steal food. The shop was closed. We took food and water as there is nowhere to buy these items. Swimming was good and with clear water. An island to... More

Beras Basah is the one of the best islands I have been to. We had a short stop here on our island hopping tour and how I wished we had spent longer, much longer time there. As I stepped on to the beach, I was instantly reminded of the scene where Jack Sparrow escapes a bunch of tribals chasing after... More

This is another stop on our island hopping tour. As there are less people here, the beach is better. You can also find some local deers on this island. Quite a clean and beautiful place.

Absolutely loved this island. We took an island hopping tour, so went through 3 small islands in one day and this was definitely our favorite. Though the waters were shallow so swimming wasn't really an option we wandered around the forest/jungle and hung out with the monkeys. There was a lot of them on the island, most of the on... More

This is just one of those extend the tour to justify the cost type of place. This will be the last stop if you take the island hopping tour in Langkawi. Don't get me wrong, you should definitely take the tour, but its just that you have to face the doldrums here. This is just a small island with an... More

Visited this island as part of the package of Island hopping. Basically a small island with lots of monkeys around. Just spend an hour or so in here would be sufficient. There are no beach activities here. Just relax.

One of the attractions covered during island hopping. We spend 1 hr at this place and took a dip in the water. However, please note that the place gets crowded, so pls take care of the belongings.

Seriously nothing special on this island, you can find sandy beach in langkawi island itself. Not toilets no water supply, you will have problem tl clean up before you leave if you want to. Watch out the monkeys and they will grab your stuff especially food from kids and girls.
