Clean and nice beach

I like this beach compare to Cenang beach. More clean and less people. the only problem is no changing room or toilet there.

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.

If you want to get away from the maddening crowds at Cenang, Tengah and other busy beaches, do not miss this one. It is easy to not find entrance to this beach while driving (yes, you need your wheels) towards the Datai resort or the T. Waterfalls. Look out for a public car park, that might be littered with stuff... More

Perfect beach, not many people. Nice view to Tarotou Island. Have a parking space but not a stall selling food or drink. you must bring on your own. Location on the way to Datai Golf resort. Before the Temurun Waterfall.

Forget other beaches! This is such a perfect, perfect beach. Very few visitors, so it feels like the place is yours alone. Getting there: Take the Datai road. If you reach Andaman or Datai Hotel, you've gone too far. It is before you drive through this rocky tunnel. The beach will be on your right. There is a signboard that... More
