We also visited this beach as part of the island hopping tour. The beach, as with most of the Langkawi area beaches, is powdery white sand and the sea was deep blue. Very clear water, very safe for swimming. Would be a great place to splash around with little kids. No toilet facilities, and just a small drink shack,but that... More

By taking half-day Island-Hopping tour, you will get to this island, short ride from main jetty and Dayang Bunting Island. The boat ride was too fast and bumpy, cool experience but you wont get to enjoy the scenery that much. Such a rushing trip. Small cafes are available around the areas. A bit too crowded for such a short and... More

We got to this beach as part of the island hopping tour. The speedboat docks at d bridge / jetty and you walk into this awesome white sand beach. Untouched waters crystal clear, great for a swim. you need to carry your swimming gear, snorkeling gear, there is a beach shack outlet which offers life jackets and other gear but... More

The beach is nice but it could be much beautiful or calmer if there are not many tourists as too many people arrive on the same time from nearby island tours so that's a bit of a turndown for us. Especially when they didn't respect the nature by smoking, which pollutes the fresh air and cause hazard to us too!... More

We visited this island on an island hopping trip. It was the last one we visited and they gave us 1 hour to swim or snorkle. It was really nice and not too crowded. Nice beach with lots of monkeys. Make sure your bags are closed, because they will take everything out of it.

The most pirate-ish island I ever visited. Went there by jetski. We did our snorkeling here and I must say.. Clean, white beach and pristine water. If only I had my beer, I could hang out here all day!

Beras Basah Island is a tropical paradise with a golden sandy beach and water that is as blue as the sky itself. We had a great time on this island whilst island hoping and spent most of our time in the beautiful lush ocean waters. Great place to come and spend some quality time with friends and family.

We visited this beach as a part of our Island Hopping tour. Such a beautiful beach! White sand, Palm trees, clean and tranquil. It was not over crowded, maybe because it is not that easy to get to. You either have to charter a private boat or visit it on the island hopping tour. The children played in the sand... More
