The Langkawi Burau Bay is located at the north-western end of the island, nearby to the Mat Cincang Mountain. Burau Bay or Teluk Burau is a fairly secluded beach in Langkawi. While Burau Bay is regarded as a public beach, the crowd mostly consists of the patrons coming from either Mutiara Burau Bay Resort or Berjaya Langkawi Beach & Spa Resort. Both of these resorts are located at the opposite end of the bay.
Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah are located at the south-western tip of Langkawi, about twenty-five kilometres from Kuah.
Both Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah combine to a two kilometre stretch of beach with fine powdery sand is lined by picturesque chalets built no higher than the coconut trees (thanks to a local government ruling). Pantai Cenang is a good choice for a relaxing time at the beach as well as a little bit of modern entertainment. The beach is popular during peak tourist season.
