Pantai Tengah on Langkawi Island has a range of accommodation choices for tourists to choose from. With some solid family options and some budget friendly options there is something for everyone (with the exception of high class tourists seeking 5-star amenities). Keep in mind that if you choose to stay on the southernmost end of the beach you will require some form of transport to reach Pantai Cenang, unless you are up for walking. The northernmost portion of the beach is only moments away from Pantai Cenang and therefore quite convenient. Try one of the following sites if you’re looking for a room on Tengah:
Pantai Tengah is pretty mellow for the most part, so don’t expect beach parties and pulsating disco music into the wee hours of the morning. Some of the resorts and restaurants have cheap duty-free alcoholic drinks up for grabs. There are a few bars and discos along the beach road to Pantai Tengah. Our suggestion is to catch sunset on the beach and then if you are up for more excitement ask a few of the locals what the most happening venue is at the time. You may find yourself heading over to Pantai Cenang in search of entertainment.
Some of the budget accommodation choices on Pantai Tengah may not offer much in the way of selection, but the more upscale options should have something to please you. Many tourists head over to adjacent Pantai Cenang because it has more restaurant choices imbedded between street shops and duty-free stores.
Day tours can be arranged on Pantai Tengah to outlying islands. On the beach itself, you can arrange to go jet skiing, para-sailing or banana boating.
