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.

  • Pretty stretch of beach. I expect to have a completely black beach but the sand is black by location only. However a nice beach to visit but not a choke.
