Dayang Bunting Island, Langkawi

3.9
#4 of 13 in Nature in Langkawi
Discover your inner peace by visiting the lush Dayang Bunting Island, featuring a freshwater lake just steps from the sea. Swim or kayak in the lake, or take a walk around the boardwalk encircling the island. While strolling through the mangrove forest, try to spot some of the island's various bird species, colorful butterflies, and free-roaming monkeys. Only accessible by boat, the island offers few amenities. Prepare for your visit by bringing your own food and water, and don't forget to wear a hat and lots of sunscreen.

  • it is a large fresh water lake surrounded by mountains.if going for a island hoping tour it is included in it.A trek of about 20 minutes is there to reach .swim suits and water must be carried along.  more »
  • The natural beauty of this place has been ruined by a lack of control of tourists. Loudspeakers blare, trash floats in the water, and monkeys are overly aggressive due to their fondness for Coca Cola ...  more »
  • Visited here on a tour, can't say I was impressed, over crowded, so much rubbish that the monkey's eat, personally wouldn't come again.  more »

  • Amazing place. Fresh water lake in the middle of sea. Surrounded by beautiful cliffed mountains and thick forest. There are pedal boats, solar with pedal boats and roawing canoe. Also a diving pond and a fish pond. Used to be a wooden walk around the lake, it's closed now. There is an entry fees to this forest. Boats have extra rates. No food stalls or bathroom facilities.
  • Amazing time and experience. Simply breathtaking.
  • Nice natural lake pool
  • Nice peddle-boating experience.
  • Very nice lake surrounded by hills

Where to stay in Langkawi

Langkawi Island offers by far the greatest number of accommodation optionsĀ 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.
