Langkawi Island is an archipelago made up of 99 islands on Malaysia’s west coast. Surrounded by turquoise sea, the interior of the main island is a mixture of picturesque paddy fields and jungle-clad hills. If you’re intent on carting off duty-free alcohol, cigarettes and chocolate, then this is the place to be. Still, nature lovers will find the island just as agreeable as the shoreline is fringed by powder-fine sand and swaying coconut trees.
Langkawi is not a single island. It is a cluster of 99 islands on Andaman Sea in Malaysia and off the western coastline of Malaysia's mainland. Actually there are five more small islands that remain submerged and can sometimes be seen during low tide. And most of these islands that comprise Langkawi are real tiny and uninhabited. The main island which is known as Pulau Langkawi is the largest of all and the entire Langkawi cluster has been named after this one. Most of the residents live on this main island and visitors arrive here.

When To Visit Langkawi

Unlike other places in Malaysia, you can travel to Langkawi all year round. Temperatures throughout the year are more or less the same, around 30-35°C during the day, and a bit lower at night, but it is still warm enough to enjoy all outdoor activities.

Although Langkawi has two distinct seasons, wet and dry, because of its location, the island is a bit shielded from major storms, which means even the peak of the rainy season is not that bad, and you can expect nice weather, at times interrupted by short storms.

The best time, but also the most crowded time in Langkawi is between December and April when it rarely rains, but especially at the end of the dry season waterfalls can dry out and the forest is not so lush green.

The rainy season is between May and November with the highest precipitation between August and October. As the weather on the island is really hot, and most of the activities take place near water, here are several essential things you should pack with you for visiting Langkawi.

Although the archipelago is actually closer to Thailand than to Malaysia's mainland, the main island still keeps its vibrant atmosphere, non-touristy feel (despite the fact the island is very popular among both local and international travelers), and most of its visitors including us appreciate clean sandy beaches, many things to see and plentiful activities to do, compact size of the island, and especially great food which has just the right mix of Malay, Chinese and Indian influence.

Beaches

Of course, among the best things to do in Langkawi cannot be missed is enjoying wonderful beaches. There is quite many of them, but in case you rent a car or a scooter, you do not have to stick only to the closest beach to your accommodation.

Pantai Cenang is the busiest beach town on Langkawi Island, where you can find a diverse mix of cafes and restaurants, as well as souvenir shops, and duty-free outlets along its picturesque beach strip. Just a 10-minute drive from Langkawi International Airport, it’s a popular holiday destination for travelling families thanks to its kid-friendly attractions such as Underwater World Langkawi, Rice Garden Museum, and many more..

Featuring white sands and clear waters, Pantai Cenang’s expansive beach is also great for sunbathing and exciting water sports such as jet skiing and parasailing. High-end resorts, chalets and budget hotels with views of the Andaman Sea are aplenty here, attracting throngs of locals, expats, backpackers, and foreign tourists. Pantai Cenang’s nightlife scene is the liveliest on Langkawi Island, with plenty of beachfront bars and lounges offering inexpensive alcohol and snacks, as well as live music and cultural performances until late.

We were pleasantly surprised that even the beach in Kuah city which under normal circumstances should be the most crowded and polluted was absolutely gorgeous, and it became our custom to sit on a beach every evening and photograph sunset before we headed to grab some food. Beaches in Kuah are more for locals, but the real hub for tourists is Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah, where you can also find many resorts and the longest beach on the island.

Do not be fooled by travel guides who like to write that Perhentian Islands are the only place where to travel to see pristine beaches in Malaysia as it is no longer completely true. Tourism has changed many destinations in Southeast Asia, and they are all not that secluded and magical as they used to be, but we believe Langkawi is still the authentic place you can visit. Do not get us wrong, Langkawi is for sure super-developed compared to Perhentian Islands, but it’s been this way for decades, and yet it is still possible to find here many laidback places.
