Beaches of Langkawi
The western beaches of Pantai
Cenang, Pantai Tengah and Pantai Kok are the most popular beaches on
Langkawi with a wide choice of accommodation, restaurants and eateries.
Datai and Burau Bay surrounded by stunning tropical rainforest provide
the location for luxury resorts and one of the most stunning golf
courses in Asia.

Sometimes spelled Chenang, offers two kilometres of fine powdery sand
fringed by coconut trees and casuarinas. Located at the south-western
tip of Pulau Langkawi (Langkawi Island), about 18 kilometres from Kuah. A combination of

number of resorts, luxury class hotels, chalets and restaurants.

On the western side of Langkawi Island, about twelve kilometres north of
Pantai Cenang, lies Pantai Kok, a beautiful powdery sand bay fringed by
limestone hills and forest. Quieter and more secluded than Pantai Cenang,
