Lots of makeshift aqua sports stalls. Reminds one of the Patong beach scene. Able to watch planes lane and take off. Some B*Bs have beach chairs on the sand. There is a drink place called Thirstday.

After a long day of KL City Tour & Batu Caves, Island hopping in the afternoon, we really enjoyed just sitting on white sand beach while the sun set beautifully at the horizon. Really nice sunset point :)

This is one of the best beaches on Langkawi. It is gentle slopping and is quite a deep beach. There are areas roped off for swimming to keep any boats away, and the water is clean and clear.

Your Langkawi trip wont be complete unless you spend an dusk here. Spend leisurely doing nothing, seeing the Sunset, watching the vibrant life with your favourite drink.
