Langkawi: Popular Beach Destination of Malaysia

A lot of locals say that Langkawi was named after the Brahminy Kite, a common bird of prey. But, that is very much debatable. The one thing that is not debatable is the fact that Langkawi is one of the more fiercely popular beach destinations of Malaysia. Its beautiful limestone cliff and forest archipelago of some 100 islands to the north of Penang has an abundance of beautiful scenery and white sandy beaches.

Langkawi Beach
Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah in the southwest are the most popular beaches lined with accommodation, restaurants and souvenir shops. In the northwest are the pretty beach of Burau Bay and the seven step Telaga Tujuh (Seven Wells) waterfall, while the Langkawi cable car brings you to the top of the 708 meter high Gunung Machincang for magnificent views of the surrounding forest and the Andaman sea. The northern beaches has some luxury resorts. Other activities include a limestone mangrove swamp tour in the Kilim nature park, island hopping to enjoy marvelous deserted beaches and snorkeling or diving in the clear waters at Pulau Payar.
