the beach is wonderful but full of people, cars, jet ski transporters; try to go to the northern part where there are less people

Langkawi and cenang beach area is a quite touristy place. But laid back and relaxing. The beach is nice with possibility to rent sun bed and umbrella for a decent price. Pricy to eat and drink at the beach bars.

Great lively beach. Plenty to see and do. Loads of companies offering jet skies and para sailing. Lots of small hotels and bars dotted down it. Very chilled and relaxed vibe. Sea is not as clean as other parts of the island probably due to all the jet skis and speed boats but still a definite must to visit

I think the location of Cenang Beach is the best in Langkawi. The water sports, and many choices of restaurants at door steps. You don't even have to rent the car. If you can't drive, take a taxi to Oriental Village or Eagle Square. The rest of time? Stay in Cenang.

Popular with people wanting to come to the beach and spend 5 days lying in the sun. Not the most backpacker friendly in terms of price but decent enough. Massive construction all around so expect to hear the sound of drills. If you're looking for island paradise, maybe look elsewhere (Thailand?).

This is apparently the best beach in Langkawi, and I suppose it is if you want a busy beach where you have up to 3 rows of loungers with lots going on around you. The top, quieter, end of the beach is private for resort guests only. The majority of the other resorts let you use their loungers for a... More

Lovely beach full of sea sports activities. Wonderful view specially at sunset in a cloudless day. Did not enjoy the swimming as the water was not clear.
