The beach itself is beautiful with long and wide stretch of sand. However it's not very pleasant to lie here and relax the whole day. Malay people selling jet ski rides and parasailing rides all the time. They drive their cars up and down the beach the whole day. How can this be accepted? Ruins the niceness of the beach... More

We visited in November 2016. The beach is nice and a happening one. If you want a quiet place please go to the end of the beach which is in front of Casa Del more hotel . Spend the time of sunset there , you will love that. There are fire shows that happen on the other end of the... More

The beach was lovely and clean. We walked along and then sat on the chairs. Then a man walked up to us and said it was 20 RM to sit until 7pm. Which we paid as there wasn't anywhere to sit and it was really hot. It appeared to look like different tour groups/activities owned a section of beach front?... More

This area reminds me of Kuta Beach or Patong Beach but less hype than those places. Sunset here is gorgeous. You can laze at the beach or even do some water sports here. There are many eateries along the road as well.

This is the best place in Asia probably to see sunsets. Every sunset is so unique and beautiful. The beach too is amazing.

Having been to nicer beaches around Malaysia, I wasn't expecting much from Cenang. But i was pleasantly reminded how beautiful it was for a beach at its own league. - Beach is clean with fine and white sand. - Water isn't crystal clear but it's definitely clean and not murky. - A lot of sea creatures found on the shore,...

Beach is great and there's jet skis and paragliding. Some really nice restaurants. Off the beach is extremely dirty though. The road is all dug up and there's uncoordinated and messy construction going on everywhere.
