Have a picnic in one of the gazebos or on picnic tables sprawled along the coast. You'll have to bring your own refreshments, and remember not to leave your belongings unguarded, as monkeys might try to search them for food. Shower and bathroom facilities are available.

  • We went to this beach as becaue on reviews .... the beach itself per se is not bad (there is nothing) but the water is muddy and murky, and at low tide it worsens it all feels even the stench of a Skunk, for us staying from koh lipe ( Thailand) was a trauma. I make a premise go to langkawi to visit and excursions, but not for the sea.

  • I like this beach. It can get busy on fridays and saturdays as this is the beach the locals head to on the weekends and school holidays. A word of warning. There is a band of monkeys in the trees that will steal anything you leave unattended. So watch out for your stuff 😆.
  • Not as crowded as other beach.
  • Beautiful and clean beach.
  • There are a lot of quiet to be sure my monkey over great food!! Must be careful never to late to stay alone

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.
