Langkawi leaves beach lovers positively spoiled for choice. For a mix of natural beauty and a lively social scene, head to popular Pantai Cenang. Or get a taxi to the northern tip of the island and Tanjung Rhu, whose secluded sands are perfect for relaxation.
If you have the time, do yourself a favor and enjoy Langkawi's emerald interior. Hike to the Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls, which are also known as the Seven Wells due to the seven pools at their foot. Or summit Gunung Raya, whose 2,400-foot peak offers one of Langkawi's most impressive panoramas.
