Nice.

Really nice clean beach. Came here today and went for a walk & went in the water a bit. Rented a couple of beach chairs under sn umbrella for 10R each & fell asleep. Good time!

The whole Cenang Beach is an area that all tourists to Langkawi will go to at some point. If you are a pedestrian coming to eat some good food and browse souvenir shops (which aren't really cheap), then it's ok to an extent. Otherwise avoid this area. The whole place is a construction zone. Parking is difficult and there are... More

Got on my feet at around 7am to head to the beach to witness the sunrise and it was definitely worth it.

I don't recommend coming to Cenang at the moment. The place is one big construction zone. It's difficult to walk, it's noisy and many places are closed. I'm totally disappointed.

Jellyfish was a problem, way too many water sports so wouldn't classify this beach as somewhere to go to relax. Annoyingly cars were driving down on the beach and it felt a little bit unsafe.

In another couple of years this place will be inundated as there are numerous hotels under construction all around town. Right now the whole place is like a giant building site. At the top end of the beach is an amazing resort, but certainly out of our budget. Nonetheless, we loved the beach in the front of this compound with... More
