Though Langkawi’s underwater sanctuaries, duty-free shopping and myth-associated landmarks may be the main reason to visit, its picturesque beaches will be the reason you stay. It’s fairly impossible to leave once you’ve donned your sunnies and set up shop on the white-sand beaches – the peaceful, breezy shoreline can rival some of the best in the world. Just around the southern road bend of Pantai Cenang, Pantai Tengah is essentially an extension of Pantai Cenang’s beach. It’s the longest stretch of beach in Langkawi and plays host to chalets and sprawling resorts that are especially popular with families with young kids. The nightlife scene here is stilted – when the sun goes down most people head to Pantai Cenang – but this is the best area to search for tour operators to liven your day up with an island-hopping or mangrove and eagle-feeding tour. Additionally, there’s a healthy range of spas, especially within the bigger resorts like Awana Porto Malai. Accommodation options in the area are varied – charming, mid-range properties dominate its landscape and the area’s got a less touristic vibe and more of a kampung feel.
