Black Sand Beach, Langkawi

1.0
#6 of 6 in Beaches in Langkawi
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. Find out how to plan Langkawi trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.
