Most people visiting Langkawi stays at either Pantai Cenang or Pantai Tengah. This is where you can find the longest beach, the most shops and restaurants.
The beach itself is long and white, the sand is like wheat flour (and can be extremely hot if you walk without shoes). It is beautiful and would probably the best beach on Langkawi if it wasn´t for all the people, cars, jetskis and other activities.
Now if that is what you want on a beach, you have come to the right place!
Areas are secluded for swimmers and if you go in somewhere else please be careful for the high speed jetskis. The drivers are usually not so experienced and they like high speed.
If you get hungry there is plenty of places to eat (and drink) and the prices ranges from low to high.
Sunbeds can be rented on several places on the beach also.
The water is unfortunately not so clean anymore but it´s ok. Temperature lies about 28 degrees C all year around.
Best time to visit is when the sun is setting (the sunset is normally magnificent here) and when the sun rises when it is nice, empty and quiet.
A warning too: there has, during the last year, been several (more than 3) occasions when a car has droven over someone laying on the beach. Make sure you have a towel in a bright color, lie in a sunbed or stay at the north part of the beach!
I am not extremely fond os this beach, way too crowded for me, so I will only give it 2 squirrels. (squirrelcounts is how we rate the beaches we have been to.
