This is the best beach we happened to visit in Langkawi as part of island hopping tour. Crystal clear blue waters and white sands are a treat to watch and a excellent place to swim

This is my favorite island in Lankawi and among few white sand beaches in Langkawi. There is no washroom, So prepare yourself before you come. I love this Island and found it too cool. Good for swimming and bath. Not sure about Snorkling. Beware of monkeys they will steal your food.

It is a part of island hopping tour. Beautiful beach but no facilities. No staying options and only swim and go. probably tats why it is still beautiful :) Since it is a part of island hopping tour, it is usually crowded and cleanliness is least bothered. Good to spend some 1hr here

Came here near noon during island hopping trip. Beach quite clean. Can see some small fish near shore. There are quite a lot of trees to provide shades besides shelter. Monkeys are on the island as well.

I like this place a lot but during island hopping only 1hour is allowed to spend time here. It is best place to capture photos and you feel very close to the nature. Beach view is so enjoyable with white sand beach and clear water. Now they have other beach activities as well for tourist. Monkeys are so mischievous and... More

This is were all island hoppers are being dropped off. We felt weird bathing in our bikinis amoung all the covered and fullt dressed muslim women. Better go in the afternoon, and avoid weekends.

A very nice place for island hoping. The sea is very clean , sand is very white and fine. A nice place to swimming, kindly inform the 'boat man' for stay more longer there if you want to swim, otherwise, 40-60 minutes is not enough.

We also visited this beach as part of the island hopping tour. The beach, as with most of the Langkawi area beaches, is powdery white sand and the sea was deep blue. Very clear water, very safe for swimming. Would be a great place to splash around with little kids. No toilet facilities, and just a small drink shack,but that... More
