Most people who stay in this quarter of Langkawi tend to stick to island-hopping, eagle-feeding tours and sunset dinner cruises. There are more kampungs dotting the roads than exciting and intriguing activities. There is one spa – located within Langkawi Lagoon Resort – where you can enjoy a relaxing spa treatment on the open-water chalets.
That being said, Padang Matsirat is not exactly the worse place to stay – it is tranquil and situated only 15–20 minutes away from the Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah stretch. Dining venues are decidedly limited but then again with Pantai Cenang just 10 minutes away, that’s not such a bad thing as this ensures that Padang Matsirat stays a relatively undisturbed locale.
