Such a beautiful beach with clear water! Near the Temurun Waterfall. I love this quiet beach but there's no toilet or shower for people. So we need to have our shower at Temurun toilet or the nearest Petronas station. Be aware of wild monkeys that will snatch your bags or food anytime!

Quite a distance away from Langkawi Cable Car, but for those with transport, they should come and have a look at Pantai Pasir Tengkorak. It is an quiet alternative to the crowded Pantai Cenang. The water looked better. However, be warned that there were monkeys around. They did me no harm, but watch your valuables.

One of the prettiest beaches on the island. Doesn't look like much from the road, I actually drove past and had to turn around. There were a few tourists there but not many people, and so much more quiet and beautiful than Cenang. There are no toilets or food stalls so come prepared.

This beach was a real find! It was recommended to us by the person at the recreation counter at our resort and we went looking for it. It was worth the wait! It is a small beach and not over crowded at all. The sand is lovely and clean and the waves are calm and beautiful. We came here every... More

Pasir Tengkorak Beach a.k.a. Skull Sand Beach is located at the North coast of Langkawi Island. It may be quite a driving distance from the main tourist areas but was totally worth it. Creepy as the name may be, the beach is clean and very secluded that you may even miss the turnoff while driving along the road towards Datai... More
