This is one of the best beaches located north of the island. To get there, you need to go to the Tanjung Rhu Resort hotel and go to the visitors car park, The beach is clean, less busier than Pantai Cenang beach and has lovely views. Pay a visit and enjoy some quiet time on the beach.

Tanjung Rhu Beach has none of the annoyance of Penang Beach. It is quiet, no jet skis speeding around swimmers, no cars driving on the beach, clear water, fine sandy beach. It is also a huge beach. If you really want to enjoy the beach, swimming, suntanning, reading a book or simply relaxing, this is the one to go. The... More

A totally amazing beach. No people and a beautiful view! It's a must when you go to Langkawi! Rent a motorbike and go there!

If you are looking for soft sand, clear water, shade and plenty of quiet tropical beach all to yourselves, here is a destination to aim for. You can walk 15 minutes from the busy 'village' of stalls near the mangrove cruise start point or, as we discovered, you can take the road off to the left signed to the hotel... More

Best beach in Langkawi and also the most private beach in entire island 🌴. Clean beach. Good food joints and local shopping available. If u have eye of an eagle u can see Thailand 🇹🇭.

We drove to the beach by bikes. Expected to see wonderful beach with blue water. Instead of cristal clear blue water weer saw brown and green dirty sea. I think it is because of river nearby. I would not recommend coming here. Even Chenang beach is clearer.

90% of the beach is belonged to privat hotels or owner therefore there is only the 10 worst procent left for "other" turists. It is still a good beach but not worth the 45min trip with car from cenang.

The beach was really clean and definitely a good place to chill. Not many people visit this beach and you'll be promised a good spot where you can lay your mat and relax. There is also a nearby store while sells coconut drink to beat the heat. You can even join some water sport activities nearby! Nonetheless, an awesome place... More

Very nice, serene and clean beach. You can go for swimming here if you are interested. This is not a commercialized beach.
