Pantai Cenang is undoubtedly the main hub of Langkawi and is the most developed western coastal area in the whole of Malaysia.
Pantai Cenang is easily Langkawi’s busiest and most popular beach town. With a myriad of restaurants and cafes, quaint souvenir shops and duty-free shops along this scenic beach destination, getting here is a breeze from The Smith House. Located just 11 minutes away from our hotel, enjoying an exciting day at the beach has never been easier. Pantai Cenang’s beach covers over 2 kilometres of white sand that’s located on the western shoreline of Langkawi. Also located on the island are popular tourist attractions such as the Rice Garden Museum, Underwater World Langkawi and Kiki Club at Meritus Pelangi Resort & Spa. With white sandy beaches and clear waters, Pantai Cenang’s all-encompassing beach makes it great for sunbathing and adrenaline pumping water sports such as parasailing and jet skiing. Should you be flying to Langkawi, you can view the full stretch of this beautiful sandy beach below as your aircraft gets close to the island for landing. Opulent resorts, chalets and budget hotels with enticing views of the Andaman Sea are in abundance here, making it a hotspot for expats, foreign tourists, backpackers and the locals. You can also take a boat ride from here to reach the nearby islands that lies on the horizon from the beach. With its secluded location and beautiful vistas, Pulau Rebak Kecil and Pulau Rebak Besar are ever popular choices amongst couples looking for a little more intimacy and peace. During the low tide, you can actually walk down to Pulau Rebak Kecil, but thread carefully for the low tide only remains low for a couple of hours. If the nightlife is more your thing, Pantai Cenang’s night scene is the liveliest of them all on Langkawi, with a multitude of lounges and beachfront bars that offer affordable snacks and alcohol, as well as cultural performances and live music until late.
