Pulau Intan Besar Pulau Intan Kechil

Of the cluster of 99 other islands that form the Langkawi archipelago. The 3 inhabited islands are Pulau Tuba, Pulau Rebak Besar and Pulau Rebak Kecil. The others are mainly uninhabited, little more than rocky outcrops separated by narrow channels with coral reefs, a diverse marine life and unusual wildlife.

Pulau Tuba

Undeveloped, this island is still a natural habitat to wildlife, on land,
under the water and in the treetops.

A mountainous island with very little lowland, the island of Pulau Tuba, about five kilometres south of Langkawi island, is the natural habitat for an interesting selection of wildlife. Undeveloped and undisturbed, with barely enough space for the dirt track that surrounds the island, it's a good place to see wildlife, up close and personal. Pulau Tuba allows visitors to experience traditional fishing village life with fishermen returning home in the evenings in their quaint fishing boats. Go hiking or bird watching, or find a deserted beach or two to get a glimpse of some elusive creatures.

Staying There
Pulau Tuba is the only other island that offers accommodation but visitors
should note there is only one place to stay - the Sunrise Beach Resort.

Pulau Rebak

Consisting of two Islands - Pulau Rebak Besar (Big Rebak Island), the main island and frequently referred to as Pulau Rebak and the other smaller Pulau Rebak Kecil (Small Rebak Island).

Rebak's attractions are lovely white sandy beaches, a lush tropical interior
filled with with tropical birds and an old fashioned rustic charm. The island is named after the Rebak tree or, as another version would put it - named because Rebak Besar resembles a traditional Malay drum or 'rebak'.

Pulau Rebak Besar

Rebak can be reached in just 10 minutes from Port Langkasuka, Langkawi Island by a ferry boat which operates regularly.

Pulau Rebak Kecil
Midway between Pantai Cenang and Pulau Rebak Besar, this island is popular with day trippers. Just just a 15-minute boat ride away from Langkawi, Rebak retains an unspoiled beauty and allure despite its easy access from Pantai Cenang. Take a leisurely stroll along the beach at low tide and walk across to the island of Pulau Rebak Kecil close by, remembering you'll have to make tracks for home not too long after as the tide only stays low for about two hours.
