Most beautiful beaches in Langkawi?

Hi

First post here. Nice Forum.

I'll be traveling to Langkawi in late August. Will stay for 11 nights at Casa del Mar. My main goal is to rest in (and to take photos of) the most beautiful beaches in Langkawi: white sand, pristine water, breathtaking surroundings and quiet.

So I have some questions for you:

1. I guess there are better beaches avaliable but is Pantai Cenang (Casa del Mar) ok?

2. Is Datay Bay a private beach (only accessible for Andaman and Datay resorts' clients)?

3. Last but not the least: in your opinion, wich are the most beatiful (even if hidden) beaches in Langkawi? Distance is not a problem since I'll be renting a car for that matter.

Thank you very much in advance.

Kind regards,

Portuguese (almost winning the World Cup...)

Hi there,

Hey...i am with the Portugese too...:-) Just hoping that their match history with the French is not gonna affect them psychologically.

Well.....Tanjung Rhu arguably the best beach in Langkawi.

Chenang beach is too commercialised to me though it is more convenient in terms of foods and other neccessities.

Try to do a 4-6 hrs island hopping trip and ask for "real" island hopping. U should be able to see more beaches from other smaller island. To me, these beaches are much better than the one on the main Langkawi island.

I used to catch a glimpse of dolphins on my way to other islands. Some friends even claimed that they have seen whales. No kidding!!!! Just try your luck...

Cheers

Tanjung Rhu is very photographic, but I think you'd be best to get out on a boat and see the island from a different angle, then you would be able to pick out the best locations. It is difficult to see the best places from the road.

Italy v France final. Bad luck Portugal, penalties, penalties, penalties.

Hi Portuguese, answers to your point questions:-

1. The beach fronting CdM is kept clean and pristine by the staff of Cdm, a ploughing mechanism driven from their Land Rover;

2> The beach in Datai Bay, is available to the public, but shower/changing facilities are strictly for guests of Datai and Andaman ; you could venture to the beach before Datai/Andaman at pantai Tengkorak;

3. though you will be renting a car, to experience and set bare foot on the many beaches in langkawi, it is best to go for islands hopping, however, with the car, you could go to Tanjung Rhu, and even at low tides, you could walk to the neighbouring islands and even "Gua Cherita".

Besides the five stars Tanjung Rhu resort, there is a Malay eatery, which serves mee gulung with large prawns; lovely to have it with beer or coconut water.

Hi,

Forgot to mention Pantai Pasir Hitam (black sand beach), there is a small fishing village there as well, its on road 113 on the north coast just past Langkawi's one and only round about, you can miss it, plus it is a beautiful stretch of coastline anyway, no or very few tourists go here.
