The Crocodile Adventureland (formerly known as Langkawi Crocodile Farm / Taman Buaya) located at the Teluk Datai area is designed to house different species of crocodiles of various sizes and ages. The park includes feeding shows, performance by the park keepers and visitor interaction with selected crocodiles. The park also provides informative and sometimes interactive details about crocodiles to visitors.
The park is located about 30km from Kuah Town and on the main road towards the Datai coast.
Pantai Pasir Tengkorak (or loosely translated as ‘Skull Sandy Beach’) is a rather secluded beach along the northern coast of Langkawi island. The beach faces the southern part of the Thai region and on a clear day, Thailand’s Ko Tarutao island is visible. The beach is located not far from the Crocodile Farm at the Datai area.
According to one of the local legends, the island of Ko Tarutao used to have a prison and prisoners who escaped from the prison would try to swim across the sea to reach Langkawi but they were usually killed by sharks roaming in the sea during that time. Most of their skeletal remains were then swept to the shore of this beach, and hence its name.
Known as Langkawi’s tallest mountain, Gunung Raya is located almost at the center of the island. The peak offers a scenic view of the island landscapes below, and one can drives (or even hike) up the road to the peak, where there are a lookout point building, a restaurant and spa, and a control tower.
