"Island Hopping - Pulau Singa Besar" Pulau Langkawi Things to Do Tip by SLLiew

Pulau Langkawi Things to Do: 581 reviews and 1,336 photos


Singa Besar = Large Lion in Malay. There is also Singa Kecik, "Small Lion" island.

The island is large enough for trekking through the jungle and along raised platform along the rocky coast. There is also some corals to snorkel off the island or for water skiing.

Some local and foreign animals like gibbons and pheasants and birds are introduced into the island as animal sanctuary. These animals are not faring well.

Nice stop to spend some time trekking and swimming and having a packed lunch.
