“Everything is there except for the beach”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

You need to be smart to figure out where exactly the sea/beach is located. Nonetheless, the area is extremely lively and happening - with so many accommodation type, food & beverage outlets and shopping options.

I love the sidewalk along the main road, that allows travelers to comfortably walk from one end to another.

“No more than a usual beach”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Hi, we were traveling on Cenang Beach from Kuah and I really must say, that there is nothing to see.. Beach is usual, lot of people were just lying under the umbrellas just because of jellyfish.. We were there when a Water festival - can recommend that - people playing sports, but if there wasnt this festival, I would regret the trip.. There are nice photo spots, but that´s all I can say.

“Very nice to go out by night”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Very nice place to meet people and go out. But it's not the best beach of the island (go to Tanjung Rhu or Pantai Kok)

“Dangerous and not recommended”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Cenang Beach is a riot of water sports with jet ski's, parasailing and banana boats making swimming a dangerous activity. Large SUV's constantly race up and down the length of the beach transferring guests from hotels to water sports desks making playing on the sand a fatal accident waiting to happen. This year alone 3 tourists have been seriously injured after been hit by these vehicles, in broad daylight! Tourism Malaysia needs to take this seriously before someone is killed.
