Forget other beaches! This is such a perfect, perfect beach. Very few visitors, so it feels like the place is yours alone. Getting there: Take the Datai road. If you reach Andaman or Datai Hotel, you've gone too far. It is before you drive through this rocky tunnel. The beach will be on your right. There is a signboard that... More

Its a nice little pocket beach, Turatao Island (Thailand) although a distance away but still visible, clear water. Beware of Monkey though as they may attack upon seeing plastic bags. Over the years the Monkeys identified plastic bags with food, so if you bring food ensure you pack it properly or otherwise they will snatch it under your nose. They... More

As you step down onto the powdery white sand, you catch sight of Koh Tarutao in the background frames majestically by the azure sky. Then you feel the soft, sensual sand oozing between your toes and you take in the sublime scenery as crystalline waves pound gently. The water is refreshingly clean and clear, the surf is healing and caresses... More

Pasir Tengkorak is the prettiest beach in Langkawi, you have to visit there. The water is clear and clean and the beach is very quiet. There are monkeys but they are afraid of people!

This small secluded beach was the best in langkawi..... We hired a scooter for the day and headed here.... The beach was clean and the water clear! Beach was not busy. Highly recommended for a nice trip away from the busy cloudy water beaches of west coast

We first went to temurun waterfall and pass by this beach. Decided to take a short walk, possibly one of my favorite beach in Langkawi. It isn't too big and not that crowded. The wind is so soothing. The water is so clean and the wave is so fresh!

The front entrance was quite hidden, need to pay attention otherwise you might miss the turning. The beach is not extremely nice but it was quiet and cleaner than Cenang. Water is not that clear but without the water sport activities, you will get some quiet time
