Pantai Tengah, about 500 metres south of Pantai Cenang is a great place if
you're looking for somewhere to simply chill out. Accommodation consists of
low key chalets with more upscale resorts recently built. Not ideal swimming conditions due to its position on the bay, but picturesque and quiet.

the film "Anna and the King" are among the other attractions.
If you're feeling energetic you can go jungle trekking or explore the local caves. Pantai Kok has a few bars and restaurants but it's mainly a place to
simply relax in the natural beauty of the beach and bay.

sand bay lined with Casuarina trees on the north-eastern tip of the island.
