It is located quite far from the Kuah town about 30 kilometres towards the Datai Bay. It is located by the road. Bring your own clean water to wash yourself since the toilet was under renovation. Bring your own food and drinks as well, the nearest food outlet is at least 5 kilometers from the beach.

The beach is quite small but the water is very clean and the sand is very white. The beach is not crowded, very nature.

Such a beautiful beach with clear water! Near the Temurun Waterfall. I love this quiet beach but there's no toilet or shower for people. So we need to have our shower at Temurun toilet or the nearest Petronas station. Be aware of wild monkeys that will snatch your bags or food anytime!

Quite a distance away from Langkawi Cable Car, but for those with transport, they should come and have a look at Pantai Pasir Tengkorak. It is an quiet alternative to the crowded Pantai Cenang. The water looked better. However, be warned that there were monkeys around. They did me no harm, but watch your valuables.

One of the prettiest beaches on the island. Doesn't look like much from the road, I actually drove past and had to turn around. There were a few tourists there but not many people, and so much more quiet and beautiful than Cenang. There are no toilets or food stalls so come prepared.
