Black Sand Beach, Langkawi

(1/5 based on 260 reviews on the web)
Take a walk on Black Sand Beach and enjoy its dark sands and the peaceful forested surroundings. Don't expect pristine views: this small beach is mainly a fishing spot, popular for the black color of its sand, due to minerals deposited from Mount Raya. Explore the tranquil area, have a picnic, or just enjoy the calm breeze and sounds of crashing waves. Buy some affordable food and souvenirs from the nearby stalls, or take your kids to the playground for some fun on the swings and slides.

  • Drove on scooters all the way from the other side of the island expecting to find a black beach, reality is a regular sandy beach and spots of black here and there and s muddy shore line probably from...  more »
  • A quet beach with a great view of the cement factory ; the only black sand to be seen is in the water channels running down into the beach. Keep driving. 
  • Nothing especially if you have a car or scooter and you are in the area you can throw an eye, otherwise it's not worth it.
