Langkawi’s Main Beach
Cenang Beach (pronounced “chenang“) is the touristic heart of Langkawi. This long stretch of fine white sand is the perfect place to have a walk, sit at a bar or restaurant, have a swim in warm waters or have a jet ski ride.
If you are to spend a few nights on the island, chances are that you will end up booking a room in one of the many hotels and guesthouses in the Cenang area, and that’s what I would recommend doing. There are tons of hotels to choose from in the area, for all kinds of budgets.
Another interesting point to consider is that from Cenang, most touristic spots in Langkawi are easily accessible. I had a lot of pleasure renting a scooter in Cenang and explore the island at my own pace, venturing as far as Tanjung Rhu.
Last but not least, as the beach is facing west, it is also the ideal spot to watch the sunset, which I am sharing with you with these panoramas.
