Black Sand Beach, Langkawi

(280+ reviews on the web)
Beach
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. Plan to visit Black Sand Beach and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Langkawi attractions using our Langkawi itinerary maker.

  • We visited this beach by car - it is out of the way but relatively easy to find using Google. There is a small group of shops there and a good toilet block. You could get souvenirs or something to eat...  more »
  • There is only a small amount of sand that is black. Beach and water was a bit dirty when we were there. Wouldn't recommend going out of your way to see but ok if you want to have a quick look.  more »
  • It is a quiet place. I like to buy salted shrimp, dried squid because its freshness n clean. If you want to buy shirts, or pants you should bargain more because here its quite expensive a bit.  more »
