Visited this beach back in Dec 2013. It's on the way to the Andaman/Datai, you need to look for a parking lot on the right. I believe this is the best beach on the main island of Langkawi, actually better than Datai Bay itself as it has very clear waters unlike other beaches on the main island. Quite a number of people, mainly locals and their children at this beach but noticed increasing popularity with foreign tourists as during my visit, they seemed to be streaming in gradually. This is one of the last public beaches in Langkawi and let's hope it stays that way. I couldn't help but resist going for a short swim in the warm, pulsing clear waters. Almost reminds me of Tioman.. haha. Loved it. Beach was maintained quite well. Oh, there is a RM2.00 entry fee which was strange.

The beach is located away from the more touristy beaches of Langkawi and is located along the north coast of the island.
The beach is clean and is great for swimming. There are no sporting activities which adds to the charm of the beach.
It is a 30 mins drive away from Pantai Cenang and is not crowded.
Good place to relax, take a quick swim or just read a book on the beach.

We drive to north side of the Langkawi, and find this beach, it not much ppl like Pantai Cenang, it consider clean and nice beach to walk n play around.

You have to paid for RM2.00 for entry fee to get in to the beach, the price given are valuable are the ppl are doing well on to keep the beach clean.

After driving from The Datai, The Andaman coast, finally I found Pasir Tengkorak Beach. Just forget about Cenang. I absolutely fell in love with this beach immediately. Soft sand, clear water and most important, it's clean. If the weather is good, the water looks bluish. There are public toilets and a small shop selling drinks and snacks. That's very convenient if you are thirsty or need some snacks during your stay on the beach. There are a few chalets and you can camp there for a few ringgit as well. This is my kind of beach.
