It is probably the most famous beach for the tourists and locals. Wait… Scratch that. It IS the most famous beach amongst the beach goers, tourists and locals.
Soft white sandy beach and blue gentle sea, it is the place to go to when you are in Langkawi Island. One must be nuts to miss out this beautiful beach.
Pantai Cenang is pretty close to the airport as it takes about 10 minutes drive to the said beach. There are abundance of resorts, hotels and motels along the beach side road. Besides, there are also restaurants, bars, cafes and souvenir shops that cater various types of tourists.
If you are adventurous junkie, there are water sports such as jet skiing, parasailing and etc to fill your needs. If those are not your thing, all you have to do is to pick a spot, soak up the sun and enjoy the cool breeze while listening and watching small waves crashing on the shore.
While you are it, do stay back till the evening. It’s probably the best place to emo view the sunset.
Not sure how I picked this place, but I do remember that I was pretty hungry and bored and this restaurant / bar seemed all cozy and nice to dine in. Besides, they were probably the only few which open early for dinner.
But having said that, this restaurant is far off from the epicenter of Pantai Cenang hotspots and hence, one needs to drive to get to this place. With all the statues and nature sprouting out of nowhere, it looks like somewhat fusion of modern contemporary with a touch of eastern affair.
Customers get to choose either to dine inside or do it al fresco style. I chose the latter as the evening weather seemed alright with fresh air weaving pleasantly.
Looking at the menu with budget in mind, I opted for something simple yet safest choice. Or so I thought. Steak Sandwich; a piece of overcooked beef with some vegetables sandwiched between a cold slab of baguette.
The meat was chewy rubbery so was the baguette. Don’t even get me started bout the crinkle cut fries.
I guess the only safest choice I made was the can of Coke that I ordered. A safe but stupid choice. I should have order beer instead since I’m a friggin’ tax free island. Bah…
