Black Sand Beach Langkawi, located four kilometres southwest of Tanjung Rhu Beach, offers memorable photo opportunities and a peaceful retreat from the island’s often crowded areas. A 20-minute drive from the Langkawi Cable Car, it’s a popular hangout spot among locals, especially during weekends and public holidays.

Despite its name, the beach is actually a mix of black and white sand, which some locals believe to be the result of a centuries-old curse laid by a mermaid because a fisherman had stolen her ring. Others claim that it’s soil from the rice paddy fields that were burned by farmers back in 1821. Read More...

Pulau Beras Basah, located 25 kilometres southwest of Kuah, features expansive sandy beaches, swaying palm trees, and clear blue waters against a verdant mountain backdrop. Therefore, we highly recommend bringing along a change of clothes, blankets, and beach essentials during this trip.

There isn’t any accommodation on the island, so an overnight stay is inadvisable for travellers. Read More...

Pulau Dayang Bunting, Langkawi’s second largest uninhabited island, is easily accessible via a 15-minute boat ride from Kuah Jetty. Its name literally translates to ‘Isle of the Pregnant Maiden’ as it resembles the silhouette of a reclined pregnant lady from afar. Locals also believe barren women will become fertile after swimming in the freshwater lake on the island. Once you’ve reached the jetty, it’s a 15-minute hike to the lake via a concrete stairway through the dense forest.
 
Surrounded by mangrove trees and a limestone formation, the freshwater lake is great for swimming while a small shop nearby offers drinks, snacks, and souvenirs as well as paddleboats and life jacket rentals. While the lake is fitted with several wooden decks, it has an average depth of 10 meters without any shallow area so life jackets are highly recommended for children and swimming novices.

The name of this waterfall means ‘Seven Wells’, referring to a collection of seven intertwined natural pools fed by seven separate waterfalls in Mount Mat Cincang. Locals claim that fairies reside in the area but tourists are more likely to find the flora around the water more magically appealing.
