The beach is good but crowded on sunset. The views were acceptable. There are many restaurants and shops near the beach. The prices of good are high. We liked to buy from local shops at half prices.

Fine sand... Many sports activities... Morning, you can find lots of shells along the beach and at night, along Chenang Beach, you can find foot massage available by the beach, its cool though. This beach is very calm and peaceful.

Lots of restaurants, duty free shops, massage parlours surrounding the cenang beach area. It is also opposite the Cenang Mall and within 5 minutes walk to Underwater World Langkawi.

I loved this place and would go back. Grab a cigar and beer at duty free and sit down, enjoy the sunset with the occasional musical performer. Beautiful safe boardwalk at night can walk for an hour along the beach. Very relaxing and chilled place.

We are also in your age group. We enjoyed walking Cenang beach as it was mostly empty. We don't know the other beach you mention.

I assume you want to do this whilst you use the beach, so I would suggest you go to the main road that runs parallel to the beach and ask there. I am pretty sure there are facilities there.
