TANJUNG RHU

 

Lies on the northern cape of Langkawi. Aptly named for its abundance of casuarinas, its enchanting beach affords magnificent views of nearby islands, which can be reached at low tide on foot. An experience not to be missed. A short journey by boat from Tanjung Rhu brings you to the doorstep of Gua Cherita (Cave of Legends). As its name implies, the cave is steeped in fabled rates of mystery and romance. On the walls of the cave can be seen ancient writing which has yet to be deciphered.

 
 
 

CENANG BEACH

 

About 25km southwest of Kuah is the famous beach of Pantai Cenang where most of the beach chalets and resorts are located. It is a lively beach with a number of restaurants and bars offering good food and drinks. There are facilities for sailing, canoeing, snorkeling and fishing. You can also hire boats for island hopping here. Opposite Pantai Cenang is the island of Pulau Rebak. At low tide a sandbar allows visitors to walk to Pulau Rebak and view the marine life caught in the tidal pools. Not far off is another island worth exploring called Pulau Tepor, which can be reached by a hired boat from Cenang Beach.

 
 
 

DATAI BAY

 

Teluk Datai or Datai Bay to the north-west of the island is way off the main road but it has the most exclusive golf course on the island. There is a beach near the resort meant mainly for resort guests. There are several jungle trails that take you down to the sea. There is a crocodile farm on the way to Teluk Datai where visitors can view the crocodiles and be entertained to shows in the mornings and afternoons.

 
 
 

TANJUNG RHU

 

At Padang Lalang there?s a roundabout with a turn-off to the north to Tanjung Rhu. The beach is lined with whispering casuarinas trees and has a pleasing, relaxing feel. Tanjung Rhu has one of Langkawi?s better beaches. The shallow water makes it fine for swimming and a sandbank links it to a nearby rocky outcrop. The Gua Cerita or Cave of Legends is just around a promontory and can be reached by boats that are hired on the beach.

 
 
 

TENGAH BEACH

 

At the southern end of Pantai Cenang is another stretch of quieter beach known as Pantai Tengah which curves past a rocky point. There is less development here but like Pantai Cenang, there are sailboats, catamarans and canoes for hire. Nearby is the Langkawi Golf Club, an 18-hole golf course which fronts the beach.

 
 
 

PASIR HITAM BEACH

 

Some 2km west of Tanjung Rhu is Pantai Pasir Hitam, a beach streaked with black sand. The black streaks are caused by the deposits of mineral oxides from a nearby spring. The sea in the area is dotted with large boulders. Along the beach is a jetty where fishing boats moor. Attractions include food and souvenir stalls that sell local crafts and trinkets.

 
 
 

ISLAND CRUISES

 

A great way to relax and take in the breathtaking scenery of Langkawi. As your boat weaves through the watery passageways between the islands, enjoy the cool breeze and warm rays of the sun. A round trip around Dayang Bunting and Beras Basah Island takes about four hours. Alternatively charter boat and enjoy a fantastic sunset cruise with cocktails. Special itineraries with a barbecue meal, snorkeling or trips to other islands can also be arranged.

 
 
 

PULAU DAYANG BUNTING

 

This jungle-clad island lying just south of Langkawi makes an interesting island-hopping stop. Marble is quarried on the island and shipped to the mainland for processing. In the interior is a small freshwater crater lake known as Tasik Dayang Bunting or the Lake of the Pregnant Maiden. A tranquil spot, the water is excellent for a cool swim. Legend has it that a childless couple drank the fresh waters of the lake and had a baby girl. The story is also told of a white crocodile or its spirit, reputed to live in it.

 
 
 

PULAU PAYAR MARINE PARK

 

Located 30km south of Langkawi. This marine park extends over a number of islands with Pulau Payar being the largest. It takes an hour to get there from the Kuah Jetty by speedboat. There is a floating platform moored off Pulau Payar which has a restaurant and underwater observation chamber to view the marine life surrounding a reef. It is a good area for snorkeling or taking rides in glass-bottomed boats.
