Pantai Tengah

Pantai Tengah, the smaller of Langkawi's two most popular beaches, offers a wide choice of places to stay. Along the beach, with the exception of Charlie's Place, are the large beachfront resorts. On the inland side of the main road is where you'll find small but upscale boutique hotels, guesthouses and homestays, which contribute to the more bohemian feel of Pantai Tengah. Many places, like La Pari-Pari and Ambong-Ambong Rainforest Retreat, are tucked away from the road and offer a more off beach but serene experience.

Pantai Cenang

Pantai Cenang is Langkawi's most popular beach. Stretching two kilometres along Jalan Pantai Cenang, this beach resort area offers a bit of everything: mid- to high-priced beachfront hotels, driftwood-constructed beach bars, bistros and restaurants offering seafood and delicacies from many international cuisines. There are spas, markets, clothing shops and of course duty-free offerings to temp you to part with your tourist ringgit. The inland side of this main thoroughfare and just behind it is where you'll find most of the more inexpensive and backpacker lodgings and perhaps a respite from bustle of the beachfront.
