    Happening beach
    The beach is clean with local food shacks along side. Not many venture into water but prefer water sports instead. The water is a little muddy on this beach and we also heard of jelly fish bites on this beach. We did go into the water albeit very carefully. Evenings are very happening with lot of people sitting on bean bags and enjoying their drinks and food. Some shacks entertain them with fire plays. We enjoyed our walks along the beach both in the mornings and evenings. Avoid daytime due to the humid and heat.

    beautiful beach with lots of activities
    A beautiful quant beach with lots of adventure activities. The summer is warm and the sun is usually warm till 6:30 pm. After that time beautiful activities and good food is available.

    Fireworks
    Bustling beach with many activities. Restaurants, juice stalls, straw sellers everywhere. Fireworks every day. Few minutes walk to Cenang Mall the biggest in the area. It remains alive till late night.

    Amazing beach
    We visited this place and enjoyed the hustle bustle, You can pay watch fireshow in the evening and watch the sunset. There are lot of water sports in the area and many vendors that will sell you packages. There are restaurants that give sunset dinners and you can also sit on bean bags to watch the fire show for RM 40+ for couple. There are lot of restaurants and street shopping in the area, Don't buy any Kilm geoforest tour here you are better booking it directly from the website.

    Change has & is happening.
    Wide beach and a good length, lovely fine sand. It’s quieter towards Casa Del Mar end but alas as others have stated, it’s become very busy with jet skis during the day and vehicles driving up and down the sand dropping & collecting them in the morning and evening. The cars / trucks don’t seem to care about people walking along the beach and often people have to jump out of the way as the cars try to go up the inclines. Also as the block footpath runs the length of the beach this is now used by mopeds to drive up and down all day long again forcing people to get out of the way. Lots of rubbish left on beach at sunset, but this generally gets cleared up the next morning or sadly washed into the sea. Construction taking place and some larger buildings being built, especially towards the Park Royal end where what looks like a rather large development is being built, Tropicana Cenang.

Dreadful place.
Hardly anywhere to get a beer.
We hired a jet ski (which was brilliant) but we were ripped off and to make matters worse...we had been encouraged to leave my partner's bag in their "safe keeping," ....we realized when it was too late that they had stolen some of our money. A canny few quid,,, but we ley it go.
Bunch of bastards.
Use a Jet Ski by all means...just don't trust any of them with any of your belongings.:
I think the company that we used was called
Not typical of Langkawi in general, but I suspect typical of this particular haunt.
The beach is probably OK..We travelled there from another area...but you would be better off in Blackpool.
Full of shysters.
I would, however, recommend the fabulous Indian Restaurant on the strip.

Many, many SUV vehicles running on the shore, between little kids and their sand castle. These trucks carry their business gears back and forth the beach and don't care much about the tourists. To travel from far to spend time here is a disappointment, not recommended. Come only if you want a dark truck in the middle of your sunset in your pictures.

Very disappointing. Obviously been a beauty in the past but now it is thronged with expensive food places, and hawkers. Big stretch of beach but all loveliness long gone.

Nice place to unwind. The beach is lovely. It’s literally sea, sand and sky! You may grab some food at the different food stalls along the pathways of the beach and it’s open to everyone!

Too many cars, trailers,motor bikes, jetski's and boats on the beach. It needs to be reigned in and managed much better. It's hard to relax, when you are constantly negotiating traffic , trying not to get hit by the countless amounts of bikes or cars . What was once a beautiful beach is now destroyed by the lack of rules and how its managed. It used to be a draw card, but for me is now a nightmare beach. Tanjung Rhu is paradise compared to cenang beach.

I'll be back!, it's my new Bali, without the hassle..vibrant and bustling at night, chilled on the beach. I’m hard to please, so if I’m going back, it worth your time.
