Destination guide

Langkawi Island is a tropical paradise

One of 2 inhabited islands of an archipelago of more than 100 off the coast of northwestern Malaysia, Langkawi Island is the ultimate tropical paradise. The blonde beaches, ancient rainforests and jungle-cloaked valleys of this UNESCO World Geopark, along with the turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea, offer a sensational background for outdoor activities, although those travelers keen to do very little will be by no means disappointed. However you choose to experience this sumptuous spot, Langkawi Island vacation rentals offer an idyllic base for your adventures. You'll find many homes place you just steps from the sand.

Things to do

Sumptuous views on Langkawi Island

For a bird's eye view of the island and a glimpse as far as southwest Thailand, there are few more attractive viewpoints than the summit of Gunung Mat Cincang, second in height only to neighboring Gunung Raya. Thankfully for some, the Langkawi Cable Car means that scaling the mountain's forested sides on foot is optional. Adventurous visitors can take an exhilarating – and sometimes fearsome – walk along the Langkawi Sky Bridge, accessible at the gondola's final stop, while those traveling with kids may prefer to head back down and enjoy a few hours at the Underwater World aquarium instead.


Outdoor adventure on Langkawi Island

While settling back on a pristine white-sand beach, cocktail in hand and with the sound of waves lapping against the shore, will likely be a feature of any stay in a Langkawi Island vacation rental, it's worth rustling up the energy to explore. Boat tours are ten-a-penny along the unspoiled shoreline, with sunset options often particularly enjoyable, although a tour through Kilim Karst Geoforest Park's mangrove forests and blue lagoons offers a little something different, with a visit to Gua Kelawar bat cave and the chance to see wild eagles swoop into the river for treats offered by your guide among its many highlights.


Seasonal hotspots on Langkawi Island

Protected by the mainland to the east and Sumatra to the west, Langkawi Island benefits from fairly stable weather. February is officially the hottest month and July the coolest, but there is actually very little difference between the two, with both months, and indeed the rest of the year, boasting temperatures upwards of 80 degrees. Most visitors turn to rainfall to decide when to book their Langkawi Island vacation rental, often choosing to travel in the dry season of January through March. If getting a great deal is a high priority, mid-season months of April through August offer still sunny days and attractive rental rates.

Natural features

Natural delights on Langkawi Island

Langkawi Island beaches, particularly Datai Bay and Pantai Cenang, are among the best in the world but the island's natural delights by no means end with sweeping stretches of sand. The island is teeming with a wonderful array of wildlife, not least the macaque monkeys and white-bellied sea eagles that call the ancient rainforest on the slopes of Gunung Mat Cincang home. If hiking through dense jungle is not your thing, the Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls, a series of 7 connected pools and waterfalls rumored by locals to be home to fairies, serve up a less intimidating way to soak up the surroundings.
