Datai Beach

Datai Beach is home to some of Langkawi’s most exclusive resorts, and is surrounded by a dense jungle that macaques and grey leaf monkeys call home.

The diverse area of Datai Bay is surrounded by a tropical rainforest, backing down onto exclusive resorts, pristine beaches, and the clear azure waters of the Andaman Sea. On a clear day, Thailand is visible in the distance.

The rainforest on the edge of Datai Beach is home to plenty of animal life. Monkeys can often be seen leaving their home to forage for crustaceans on the beach. Other native residents of the area include peacocks, hornbills, and iguanas.

Stay in one of Datai Bay’s five-star resorts. Many of the resorts have their own private beach and swimming pools, secluded from the area by the rainforest. The resorts also offer daily guided tours into the tropical jungle. Take a tour and photograph wildlife, birdwatch, explore the mangroves, or even learn about medicinal Malaysian plants.

If you’re only visiting Datai Bay on a day-trip, rent a car or motorbike from Kuah, Langkawi’s main settlement. Although the beach is reserved for patrons only, you can still book lunch, dinner, or a massage in a hut by the rainforest at one of the resorts. Visit Datai Bay Golf Course where the fairways weave been the forest, set against the stunning backdrop of the mountains and the Andaman Sea.

Go for a hike in the surrounding mountainside area of Mat Cicang, and relax in the waters beneath Temurun Waterfall, the tallest waterfall on the island.

For a more snappy natural experience, head to Langkawi Crocodile Farm. The farm harvests a wide variety of baby and adult alligators and crocodiles for their skin. Buy a stuffed baby crocodile or leather products from the farm’s gift shop.

Datai Beach is off the main road on the northwest coast of Langkawi. Once you’ve left the main road, you’ll need to walk along one of the rainforest trails to reach the beach.

A holiday is a good time to slow down and unwind. It's also the ideal time to have some new experiences!

In the list below are just some of the awesome things to do that we suggest for your trip to Datai Bay:
