Located approximately 18 miles from the north west coast of the Malay peninsula, Langkawi is a paradisaical archipelago made up of 99 islands of which just two are inhabited. Blessed with a verdant interior and fringed by power-soft beaches kissed by the Andaman Sea, Langkawi is a land of legend and beauty that needs to be seen to be believed.

  • The island is renowned for its beautiful beaches, particularly on the northern coast with the sweeping Datai Bay being one of our favourites
  • Much of Langkawi is covered in ancient tropical rainforest, home to an array of wildlife species including the great hornbill and flying lemurs
  • As well as an ancient rainforest Langkawi boasts beautiful mangrove forests on its north eastern coast, a great place to explore for nature lovers
  • A stay in Langkawi offers a relaxing follow up to a tour or combines perfectly with a city break in Kuala Lumpur
  • Those who have a head for heights should take the cable car to Mat Cincang Peak and the Langkawi Sky Bridge for incredible island and Andaman Sea views
