Black Sand Beach, Langkawi
(1/5 based on 240+ 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.

  • Tourists will be hyped. We found the beach dirty and completely unattractive. Max 10 minutes is sufficient for the "attraction".

  • A beach with a bit of black sand of it, not too much beach, quite a thin strip of sand. When we visited rhecarea was deserted and very quiet. Not much else ther apart from the beach 
  • The beach and sand is ok. Interesting to see traces of black sand. However the area and shops/eateries around it are not well-managed.
