Probably Malaysia’s most famous beach destination, Langkawi is a rainforest dominated archipelago made up of 99 beautiful islands off the northwest corner of mainland Malaysia. With just 2 of those inhabited, Langkawi is a truly tropical destination.
Surrounded by the crystal clear, emerald waters of the Andaman Sea ensconced in lush green vegetation and carved in incredible limestone karsts, the island is a hotbed for nature activities with the Langkawi cable car and Sky Bridge standing out as must-see attractions. Sungai Kilim Nature Park and nearby Pulau Payar Marine Park are excellent places to explore the wondrous natural beauty of the archipelago. The best time to visit is between November and April, making it an excellent Christmas and Easter destination.
Connected by a short flight from Kuala Lumpur Pulau Langkawi, the largest of the islands is the main hub of activity with the smaller islands providing a plethora of excursions for wildlife, walking and exploration enthusiasts. With its abundant marine life, Langkawi’s coastal waters offer superlative diving and snorkelling, whatever your ability level and a host of world-class and exclusive Spa resorts dot the beaches catering for the most discerning.
