Pantai Kok Activities
What to Do in Pantai Kok
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.
Located within the Sheraton Langkawi, this hotel spa comprises four double villas and a tranquillity centre completely secluded away from the rest of the resort. Treatments include facials as well as body and massage treatments; try the Chavana Massage and the ‘Pure Natural’ facial.

Cicli – Cycle Network Langkawi

With such vibrant activities – you can even rent an off-road buggy or go abseiling – this place is quite possibly the best place to go for some good tips on how to make your Langkawi trip an unforgettable experience.

Nearby the Telaga Harbour Park is Island Horses, an equestrian centre located at the foothill of Gunung Mat Chincang. The only riding centre in Malaysia to offer mountain-trail horse riding – a 75-kilometre tropical jungle track – Island Horses is a good way to spend time within the lush jungle without having to hoof around on your own two feet.

Langkawi Anjung Spa
The Anjung Spa is located beside Cicli in a nondescript corner lot of the Oriental Village. Offering a variety of treatments such as massages, body scrubs and reflexology treatments, this centre is most especially noteworthy for its fish spa treatments. Immerse your feet and let the small fishes nibble away at the dead skin; you’ll leave with clean glowing feet.

Langkawi Cable Car
Taking you on a vertiginous trip to the apex of Gunung Machinchang, this is one of Langkawi’s best tourist attractions. At any given time of the day you’ll see huge groups of people queuing up to get tickets. Keep your fingers crossed for good weather because if it rains, as it often does in Langkawi, or even if there is a strong wind, then the cable car ceases to operate.
- Opening Hours: 10:00 – 18:00 Monday – Thursday; 10:00 – 19:00 Friday – Sunday.
- Location: Oriental Village
- Tel: +604 959 4225
Langkawi Elephant Adventures
Established in 2006, Langkawi Elephant Adventures features Lasah, a bull elephant who’ll take you on jungle and fun rides. If you’re not really in the mood to go on trampling adventures, then you participate in elephant-feeding sessions.
- Opening Hours: 10:00 – 18:00
- Location: Oriental Village, Burau Bay (beside Cable Car counter)
- Tel: +60 12 512 9200
This is most probably the best thing to do around the Oriental Village if you don’t get a chance to go on the Cable Car. Rent one of these babies and take a spin around the Oriental Village to do a little retail therapy; it’s also the best way to avoid the steamy crowds that part when you’re riding one of these things just to avoid you.
- Opening Hours: 09:00 – 18:00
- Address: Block I-103, Oriental Village, Jalan Teluk Baru
- Tel: +6019 529 9173
Telaga Tujuh – also known as Seven Wells – is an approximately three-kilometre walk inland from Pantai Kok. Located just north of the Oriental Village, you can see water cascading down the hillside through a series of seven natural pools. This water attraction is a great way to spend the afternoon; entry into the park if free so you can often see kids – and overgrown adults – sliding down from one of these shallow smooth stone channels to another.
- Opening Hours: 24 hrs
- Location: Gunung Mat Chincang, Pantai Kok (south of the Oriental Village)
