Pantai Cenang (Langkawi)

Pantai Cenang (Langkawi)

Characteristics

Description

This anchorage is intended to cover the main beaches  on the west coast - Pantai Cenang (pronounced Chenang) and Pantai  Tengah. (Pantai means 'beach').
As this is the prime tourist area you can expect a lot more activity on the land and water, such as jet skis, para-sailing /water-skiing.

Cenang needs anchoring at least 200 m off shore. Tengah, (to the South) is deeper in close. Cenang has no protection from the south and can get quite rolly if the wind swings around from NE to SW during a late afternoon sea-breeze, which usually stops around sunset.

The difference between high water mark & low water mark during spring tides is over 100m, so dinghies need to be hauled a long way up the beach if ashore for some time. 

Various shops available behind in the SE of the beach.
