Langkawi Black Sands Beach (Pantai Pasir Hitam)

Pantai Pasir Hitam (or Black Sand Beach) is a beach located at the north end side of Langkawi, known for its black colored sands. Although the black sands have been slowly washed over by the sea waters over the years, there are still some left over on the shore. The color was apparently the effect of the presence of some minerals in the soil.
