Langkawi’s delicious, alabaster beaches are not only some of Malaysia’s best, National Geographic listed them in their top 10 worldwide. Pantai Cenang and its southern appendage of Pantai Tengah is the island’s most developed stretch and arguably its most impressive beaches. Pantai Kok, fronts a beautiful bay surrounded by heavily forested mountains with limestone caves. The sandy strip of Tanjung Rhu offers more upscale amenities, while Burau Bay and Pasir Tengkorak have a more secluded, hidden air. The aptly named Black Sand Beach wraps up a wonderful variety of Langkawi sunbathing spots.
