What to Do in Padang Matsirat

All Padang Matsirat Attractions A to Z

Padang Matsirat is a quiet area of Langkawi with a limited amount of attractions. There are more kampungs than resorts.

However the area has a few attractions that can keep you occupied for an afternoon or so. These attractions are not located close to one another, so you’re either going to need a car or you’ll need to arrange a tour with one of the operators. Entrance fees are usually non-existent or fairly cheap. Heading west you’ll hit the Pantai Tengah and Pantai Cenang stretch which features additional recreational activities while Pantai Kok – located to the north – boasts even better landmark attractions.
