Pasir Tengkorak Beach

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.
