Cenang beach is one of the most popular beach ; alive with water sports activity . Beautiful, clean and tranquil beach. One must enjoy the hospitality of the beach side hotel with a cup of Malaysian tea. Indeed refreshing.

Went for a casual walk at Pantai Cenang and stalls selling batiks. t-shirts , souvenirs were in abundance ! Pleasant , except for a couple of roadwalk repairs to widen the road. Pick up a good knick knacks. F& B a lot, but watch out for the price!

This is one of the most popular beaches in Langkawi. It is accessible from a lane behind the Underwater World; another popular tourist attraction. This beach is lined with many hotel and palm trees. The beach is clean but crowded on the weekends. Not as beautiful as Pantai Tengah but very popular with locals and foreigners alike.

The beach is beautiful and the views even better There are some sunbeds available for rent but not too many as to spoil the beach There is some water sports as well however you are not hounded by them to try and they are not a nuisance to people on the beach, although it would be a lot better if...

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

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!

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.
