Most visitors to Langkawi feel that Pantai Kok is a few cards shy of a full deck – its gorgeous setting yet out-of-the-way location makes it unapproachable. What’s more, they assume that it is a relatively dead-end locale, yet nothing could be further from the truth as Pantai Kok is one of Langkawi’s best tourist attraction-laden areas.
Most visitors stick like glue to the Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah vicinity – assuming that they’re the more interesting beaches due to the odd mix of backpackers, package holidaymakers, expats and families in this area at any given time of the day.
Pantai Kok, on the other hand, plays host to a variety of upscale foreigners since the area is home to some of Langkawi’s more high-end resorts and the posh Telaga Harbour Park – where a plethora of sleek and gorgeous yachts dock.
Pantai Kok is home to the Oriental Village as well as Perdana Quay, where a wide variety of stores, restaurants, attractions, activities and bars are located. In a nutshell, Pantai Kok is definitely one of Langkawi’s most up-and-coming hotspots.
