Other Islands in Langkawi

Pulau Bumbon

The island is only ten minutes from the Kuah jetty; its beaches are pleasant and peaceful. Those who seek a truly secluded place should come here. You can get to the island by booking a day trip through a tour guide in Kuah.

Pulau Dayang Bunting

Its name translates to ‘Isle of the Pregnant Maiden’, and is the second largest island of Langkawi. Draped in verdant rainforest, the flora and fauna found here is amazing. A large lake on the island is believed to have magical properties; the water grants barren women fertility, hence its name. The water is also great for swimming. A cave called Gua Langsir sits here, home to thousands of bats, definitely worth an expedition or two. The island is accessible through a 15 minute boat ride from Kuah but plan your trips for a day as there is no accommodation available.

Pulau Payar Marine Park is a popular site for snorkelling and diving enthusiasts keen on exploring Langkawi’s undersea action. Just 30km south of the main island, it is about 45 minutes away from the Kuah jetty point and you can take either a catamaran or a speedboat to get here.

Comprising four islands, the largest of which is Pulau Payar, and three smaller isles (Pulau Kaca, Pulau Lembu and Pulau Segantang) this marine park is spread over two nautical miles. None of these islands are inhabited and are strictly regulated by the Fisheries Department of Kedah to maintain their pristine condition. Read More...

Pulau Singa Besar

This lion of an island may lack the size but it certainly makes up in heart. Contrary to its name which means ‘Big Lion’, the island does not house those giant felines. Instead it is a wildlife sanctuary for monkeys, deer, snakes, lizards and birds. The island is also rich in unique rock formations and mangrove plants. A one-day trip can be arranged where a guide will explain about the flora and fauna as you traverse the island. There is no accommodation but you are allowed to camp overnight with permission from the local Government.

Pulau Tuba

Pulau Tuba is a beautiful, remote island that is home to a group of traditional fishermen. Though it is relatively undeveloped, there is a sole resort and home stay programmes among the fishermen. The island is a great place to do bird-watching and jungle-trekking.
