Stunning Beach at Pantai Kok....

Pantai Kok lies on the far western stretch of Langkawi.This is the best beach on the island a large sweep of powdery white sand, with clear and shallow water. Quiet and secluded with a more intimate feel. Several scenes from Anna & the king were shot here. Eating out needn't be restricted to your resort, the areas of Pantai Cenang, Pantai Kok and Pantai Cengah are popular. Get them to go easy on the chilli for the littlies....

Tanjung Rhu beach....

On the North coast this gorgeous beach bends along the coastline past the Four Seasons Resort, and towards a backdrop of majestic rock formations and emerald green ocean. There are a few small shops selling clothing and batiks as well as several cheap, local restaurants offering delicious Malay dishes. Boat companies near the beach can organise trips around the small islands nearby as well as guided tours of the Kilim National Park.

Tiny Tip: The Four Seasons resort on Tanjung Rhu beach is stunning a feast for the senses, walk through the resort and out onto the white sand beach. Serai, which means “lemongrass” in Malay is a wonderful spot to take a snack whilst your littlies play in the sand. The restaurant’s elegant design, accentuated with stone and timber, wicker chandeliers, copper pots and wind chimes, perfectly complements the magnificent backdrop of lush greenery and the emerald waters of the Andaman Sea.
