We found this beach while exploring the island. The beach very deep, depending on the other beaches here. The view is very good. And you can easily spend some ours here just enjoying the view, the beach and the water. The only thing is that most of the beach is owned by a hotel. But it is very worth to... More

This beach is on the other side of the island, about 30 minutes scooter ride from Cenang. Just keep going past the resort and take a left turn at the end when you get to the crocodile cave parking. There is a small market area before the beach, just a couple of stalls selling beach clothes, drinks etc. Park your... More

The beach is so amazing and breath-taking! My family loved the sand bar! The best experience walking on the beach. Truly a must see place in Langkawi. :)

This beach is in the north of the island, but still just a 20 minute motorcycle ride away. It is much quieter than the other beaches and really peaceful. There's also lots of trees around, which provide great shade for those like me that burn really easy. There's some basic restaurants and shops at the beach, and some resorts nearby... More

we were circling around the island when we saw this beach, the view is breath taking and the sand and the green blue sparkling water omg really really nice. although its a bit not as calm as Cenang beach, i think you can still dip yourself in sea and there are water sport nearby if you have the extra $$$...

Happened to visit the beach twice. Once for the sunset but couldn't see one and then the next morning for our mangrove tour. Less crowded and commercialized beach amongst others in Langkawi. Nice and clean and good place to swim or relax. Must visit

We explored almost every beach on Langkawi Island, but Tanjung Rhu is the most beautiful. It's located on the most northern point of the island (just pass by the Four Seasons and the Tanjung Rhu Hotel) and just enjoy the view. Behind the beach there are several stalls offering beachwear, some food and drinks, but mostly it's the starting point... More

This is one is probably most beautiful beach in Langkawi. There’s a long and deep bed of white sand, which almost gives you a glimpse of Mauritius. It’s actually a bay, and not a proper beach, and hardly any waves. Having said that it’s a dangerous beach as the reverse currants can come very unexpectedly from the opposite side taking... More
