Pantai Tengah Restaurants

Where and What to Eat in Pantai Tengah

Pantai Tengah’s restaurants will keep you as busy as a beaver, and just as hungry. Like Pantai Cenang, it boasts more than a few good restaurants. The area may not be as developed as Pantai Cenang – sidewalks are a luxury and the roadside is frequently muddy – but the beach is the longest in Langkawi. There are frequent expanses of grassy plots of land and abandoned projects are a dime a dozen here but Pantai Tengah also has its charms – the area is quiet and shaded by lots of trees so walking along the sidewalks is not too much of a chore.

Pantai Tengah practically has zero sightseeing attractions and day-time activities are scarce.
