The beautiful black beach is also a local holiday destination. Many tourists from all over the world come here to check in. The sand here is black, so it gets its name. A great place.
On the third day in Langkawi, before going to the Sky Bridge, I said I would pass the black sand beach. My friend said that he had been here almost ten years ago. At that time, it was really a black beach. It is worth seeing the unique landforms formed by volcanic sand. I must go and see it. As a result, there was a problem with the navigation, and I couldn't find it after searching for a long time. This black beach is considered a free attraction, but there is a building at the entrance, selling clothing, swimsuits and other small commodities, as well as some relatively old children's amusement facilities. If you only look at the exterior, you can't see that there is a beach below, and you will think that you are just passing by an ordinary bay. Walking down the tree-lined slope to the beach, there is no one, and it is indeed a beautiful scene with high sky and light clouds. The black sandstone here is covered with white fine sand blown by the sea breeze, so it is not as stunning as expected. The blend of black and white gravel is a bit like the feeling of sand covered on other beaches, but the visual effect is not very unique. However, if you hold these black sand in your hands and want to see it, you can still see the unique texture of the volcanic stone. There are not many tourists on this beach, but it is close to the coast with lush vegetation, which is a very good landscape. A spot suitable for a break on the journey.
It is about six kilometers away from Tanjung Rhu Beach, so you can visit it on the way, so there is no need to go there! It is called the black sand beach, naturally because the sand is black, but the black sand here is completely different from the black sand that can be seen on the beaches of Taiwan. The sand quality is relatively fine, only the surface of the sand is black. There is still golden sand underneath. The hinterland of the entire beach is not large (maybe at high tide), next to it is the fishing boat berth, not far from Tanjung Rhu Beach, but the beauty index is very different. To be honest, you can leave more time for Tanjung Rhu Beach!
Black Sand Beach is a very strange beach in Langkawi. The beach here is black, but it is not because of dirty sand, but natural black sand. The sand is also very delicate, it is very soft when you step on it, and the beach is not very long. It is good to watch the sunset here and it is worth a visit.
After enjoying the sunset and black beach, walk back to the hotel. A nearby hotel has a garden-like environment, surrounded by mountains and forests, accompanied by tropical flowers and gardens. Unfortunately, there is no open landscape. The rooms are big enough for dancing. The facilities are really old, but they are also a bit nostalgic.
I was doing my jet ski ride so I took a look at that beach as well! something unique around that area and of course something to add for your insta collection! enjoy your day! Cheers!
Beach is dirty and smells. There's a water waste pipe leading from land to the beach area where people suppose to walk pass it!!? Black sand probably deteriorated over the years, not much left.
Loved the folklore behind the sand. It was also very secluded and beautiful. If you walk a little bit up from the main spot, the view gets beautiful, and the sand quality gets better to. The water is ...
Having visited a black sand beach, we were prepared for and expecting a black sand beach... This isn't one.
Worth a quick stop whilst travelling between places, great lookout providing you look right and not left towards the cement works. Interesting geology about the place.
