On Langkawi's western coast, Pantai Cenang is the most active area of the island. The wide selection of hotels and resorts not only provides something for everyone and every budget but has also given rise to a nice selection of shops, restaurants and night spots. As well, being a beach there are any number of water sports activities on offer including swimming, jet skiing, water skiing, wind surfing, sailing and parasailing.
To the south of Pantai Cenang is Pantai Tengah. Being more upscale than its neighbour to the north, everything in Pantai Tengah is a bit more expensive and a bit less crowded and more relaxed and quiet.
Pantai Kok is famous for being the backdrop in the movie "Anna and the King". This beautiful, but remote, beach is situated at the base of Gunung Matchincang (Mt. Matchincang). In spite of being off the beaten track, Pantai Kok offers powdery white sand and shady casuarinas trees that draws visitors from near and far in search of the ideal beach.
FYI, in order to remain objective, hotels are listed in alphabetical order. We don't favor any hotel for any reason.
