We were there on a non-peak season, so the beach was quite bare. But the weather was superb. A little bit of rain did not stop us from doing the activities of jetskiing & parasailing. We even had a banana boat ride. And the beach was refreshing.

It's not the best beach I've ever been to. But it's very clean, and there's lots of room to place your towel and enjoy the sunshine. Water isn't clear - but it is clean. Also, no hassles from sunglasses vendors etc.

The beach has fine sand, though many broken seashell too, but what's most unique is the many crabs and the holes they make, definitely recommended

The beach has clear water and the sand is white in colour. I would suggest to go to the beach around 5 PM.Enjoy the water rides. Then watch the sun setting down. There are some nice hangouts on the beach. But donot expect high end nite life there. By 11pm all shops closes.So plan according. For food and drinks i... More

It just about 3 km from the airport and half an hour drive from Kuah town. Along the busy road parallel to the beach are hotels, restaurants, fast food, cafes, shops and a mini mall typical of a beach town. The beach is average with calm waves with the usual sport activities.

Excellent vive late afternoon and into the evening, however even early afternoon, most places are still closed. Water is dirty, just like Langkawi in general. With Thailand so close I don't know why anyone would return to Langkawi a second time. The main street is appalling, broken roads, broken or non existent footpaths, rubbish and filth everywhere. The only plus... More
