Langkawi  The Isle of Legends

• An Introduction • Getting There • Legends • Sights & Visits • Beaches • Islands •

• Stay-in Langkawi • Travel-in Langkawi • Langkawi Map •




Pulau Langkawi is the main island of a cluster of 99 islands tucked

away off the coast in the northern tip of Peninsula. An island resort for

the entire family, a romantic escapade for honeymooners, a heaven for

water sports enthusiasts and a sanctuary for sun worshippers.
Another attraction of the island is its ‘Duty Free’ status.


The flattish southern half is where the airport and Kuah town are located while

the north features a hilly spine clad in verdant rainforest and rubber plantations.

The east coast is fringed by dense mangrove swamps and limestone hills.

It is in the north that Langkawi comes alive and nature is at its most vibrant.


With a population tickling 60,000, things are predictably slow and unhurried. Langkawi’s beaches while not the finest in Asia, are pretty decent

with a few white sand stretches to rival any.
