  • Water is fine, not the crisp blue nor emarald green but is ok. Although jellyfishes might be a trouble.  more »
  • Even though we were in the off-season on Langkawi's was very noisy on the beach. Jet skis drive it anywhere and it's not particularly clean.

  • The rest is delicious and there are places in the shade to lie. It's not pressure. There is plenty to do in the evening on the beach. There is a relaxed atmosphere. In the North there are more beautiful beaches.

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.
