Pantai Pasir Tengkorak Beach

Langkawi Attractions

Pantai Pasir Tengkorak Beach is a secluded beach set along Langkawi’s northwestern coastline, featuring a forested area, soft white sands, and clear waters that are perfect for relaxing after a day of exploring Langkawi Island. Often overlooked by tourists due to its rather hidden locale, this beach is just four kilometres east of Datai Bay.

Literally translated to Skull Sand Beach or Sandy Skull Beach, its rather ominous name is based on several local legends that have been passed down through the years. Some claim that it was named after bodies of unfortunate sailors were found washed up on the beach after a massive storm while others believe them to be the victims of a sea monster.

Pantai Pasir Tengkorak Beach offers an array of recreational activities such as swimming, trekking, camping, and sunbathing, and you can catch a glimpse of Ko Tarutao, one of the islands in Southern Thailand. There are also unique rock formations located on both ends of the beach which date back to over 500 million years.

Although it’s relatively far from many Langkawi’s attractions, local families often flock to the beach during weekends and public holidays. Pantai Pasir Tengkorak Beach is part of the Hutan Lipur Pasir Tengkorak Recreational Forest, where you can find plenty of picnic tables, beachfront huts, bathrooms, shower rooms, and prayer rooms. There are several food stalls selling fruit juices, coconut water, fish crackers, fried chicken, and sausages just outside the parkland’s main gate.
