Perfect for people who likes beautiful calm beach. You may swim here. Recommended for people to have picture by the beautiful... More

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

This beach has plenty of parking, with a short walk along a paved path to the shoreline, a very popular hangout for locals having picnics. Quite a secluded small beach with plenty of places to sit enjoying the shade of the trees. Definitely worth a visit. The water is also very calm - more lapping at the shore rather than... More

Small beautiful beach, not crowded, crystal clear water with lot of small fish. Perfect for picnic and swimming. Safe for small children too. But you need to bring water, food, towels etc on your own. There's no facilities there. From kuah town or chenang beach, will took approx 30-45 minutes of driving.

This is a small but peaceful beach. It is secluded and not many people come here. Great for a swim and sunbathing. Very basic. No eateries around though. But must visit.
