The Datai Bay Beach
Unspoilt as the ancient rainforest that fringes the shore of the Datai Bay. The white-sand beach curves gently in a protective crescent moon around the bay to create a stretch of sand that is 1.5 kilometres long and 30 metres wide at normal tide.
Sailing
Discover the hidden beauty of Langkawi on board the Naga Pelangi. Malay sailing boats evoke a bygone era of pioneering discovery and fantastical adventure aboard the Naga Pelangi, a 30-metre, traditional wooden Malaysian junk schooner.
