  • The beach has an interesting background to its name. Also called the Sandy Skull Beach, it brings back images of pirates. It's a favourite picnic spot for locals, but you'll see foreigners...

  • Beautiful little beach worth visiting because it is quite different than all other long beaches at Langkawi. There was a little kiosk where a nice old man was selling coconuts, water, noodle cups...
