In the farrago of Langkawi islands lay a serene beach, the Black Sand Beach which is fully covered with black sand and clear water. Popular leisure spot during weekends, it is a perfect place for capturing some incredible photographs, picnicking and sunbathing. The black colour of the sand comes due to the mineral content from the Mount Raya granites deposited on the golden sand.
Also known as Pantai Pasir Hitam because of the black sand, the beach is famous for ancient wooden jetty and a fishing village. Though the beach is not suitable for swimming, it is still one of the most prominent beaches in the southwest area of Tanjung Rhu. The beach houses many small huts which can be used as a picnic spot. Kids can enjoy in the playground filled with ample thrilling swings and slides.
