Pantai Cenang Activities
What to Do in Pantai Cenang
Pantai Cenang is Langkawi’s most popular area; the majority of good restaurants and luxury resorts are located along its gorgeous beach. Sunbathing and enjoying the surf are all par for the course and visitors come here to lounge on the beach and enjoy spa treatments and massages. The beach is usually littered with couples enjoying the sun, sand and surf; vacationing families tend to stick to the other parts of Langkawi. If you’re looking for a rowdy, rambunctious time, then head on over to some of Malaysia’s other areas for more strenuous activities, because on this beach, rest and relaxation reign supreme.
