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.

Where to stay in Langkawi

Langkawi Island offers by far the greatest number of accommodation options out of all 104 isles in the archipelago. Look for affordable and comfortable rooms in Kuah and the southwestern peninsula, where inexpensive hotels, hostels, and rental apartments draw many budget visitors. For a luxury experience, head to the surrounding islands, where private resorts charge high prices for more amenities and larger rooms.
