Popular with people wanting to come to the beach and spend 5 days lying in the sun. Not the most backpacker friendly in terms of price but decent enough. Massive construction all around so expect to hear the sound of drills. If you're looking for island paradise, maybe look elsewhere (Thailand?).

This is apparently the best beach in Langkawi, and I suppose it is if you want a busy beach where you have up to 3 rows of loungers with lots going on around you. The top, quieter, end of the beach is private for resort guests only. The majority of the other resorts let you use their loungers for a... More

Lovely beach full of sea sports activities. Wonderful view specially at sunset in a cloudless day. Did not enjoy the swimming as the water was not clear.

People come here for a slice of paradise but there is a fine balance between that and giving people retail opportunities. The number of resort hotels is now so great that nobody could really call this paradise any more. I fear that they are going after the volume market by attracting big numbers of Chinese tourists in which case the... More

Lots of activities if you want that jet skis,banana boats etc. However I would not suggest it for peace and quiet. The jet skis etc are taken on and off the beach by 4x4's so there are quite a few vehicles up and down the beach. There is a public path which is quite a good idea, however not brilliant... More

If you're into a beach with lots of action then this is for you! Tons going on, lots of activities, lots of action and people, but still possible to plop yourself down to get some sun or play in the sand with your little ones. We had a great time! Notable : if you're looking for a quiet and relaxed... More

Langkawi Island, Pantai Cenang. Beautiful beach. Pleasant surroundings, many bars and restaurants. The whole impression spoil parked everywhere motorboats and water sports equipment. Swimming becomes dangerous. Unfortunately, no one seems to care....

It is a nice beach, but is very busy and some people love that, but I personally love a more tranquil beach experience. However, it is super convenient here. It's along the main stretch of restaurants and shops and the sunset was really nice to watch from here. I'm not sure how comfortable I would be swimming at this beach... More
