The Pulau Payar Marine Park is situated in the northern part of the Straits of Melaka and has a fascinating diversity of marine life and vegetation.
Here the waters are ideal are for snorkeling, diving and swimming. There are several sandy beaches on Pulau Payar island for picnics as well as hiking trails for those who wish to explore the island.
Visitors can get to Pulau Payar from the Kuah jetty point by catamaran or speed boat.
The rice is the bread of Asians, a necessary ingredient to every meal. The Rice Garden is dedicated to the humble grain, imparting knowledge of its history from the museum, demonstrating its cultivation in the farm . Here you can see traditional as well as modern methods of cultivation.
There is also a restaurant offering popular traditional Malay recipies and local delicacies which are prepared using rice as the main ingredient.
It's located just ten minutes away from the airport and the ticket price costs RM2 but children get to go in free.
Address: Pantai Cenang
Directions: 10 minutes from the airport
This waterfall flows down the slopes of Mount Raya, along the way dotted with unique rock formations and immersed with crystal-clear water. A rich variety of vegetation grows abundantly around the falls. Just a short distance away are some hot springs in Kampung Ayer Hangat.
It's a very relaxing place to go and feel more in touch with nature.
Located on the south-eastern part of the island, Kuah is Langkawi's main town and the transit point for ferries to the neighbouring islands.
A former fishing village, the town is developing fast. In the centre visitors will find new luxury hotels, business complexes, banks, duty-free shops, small emporiums and large shopping malls.
Kuah has no real beach, but in addition to the shopping there are also some interesting places to visit. Close by in Bass Harbour, home of the Royal Langkawi Yacht Club and yacht charter base for Sunsail charters.
Tanjung Rhu beach
Tanjung Rhu lies in the northernmost tip of the island. It's a quiet and pretty enclave, shaded by whispering casuarina trees and fringed by centuries-old limestone caves and uninhabited islands.
Scenic and untouched, Tanjung Rhu is home to one of Malaysia's most unusual ecosystems. Mangroves, waterways, limestone crags and sandy beaches make it a nature lover's paradise.
It was the most beautiful beach I saw in Langkawi.

This is the most central of all beaches and where most of the hotels are situated. Located at the south-western tip of Langkawi, about 18 kilometres from Kuah.
The fine powdery sand beach at Pantai Cenang fringed by coconut trees and casuarinas, stretches for two kilometres and is lined with a mix of resorts, luxury hotels, chalets and restaurants. Popular during the peak tourist season, it makes a good base for exploring nearby islands like Pulau Rebak Kecil and Pulau Rebak Besar.
It's a nice beach, not stunning but very nice and pleasant.
