Pulau Beras Basah
Pulau Beras Basah literally means Island of Wet Rice. It features lush, mysterious jungle with mountains looming in the background. You can expect to see spectacular sights like the breathtakingly beautiful beach with its white powdery sand and blue—green waters. Do some snorkelling or swimming or simply relax in the sun. A good way to see this island and also Pulau Singa Besar and Pulau Dayang Bunting is with an "island hopping" boat tour. Board at Pantai Marble (next to Kuah Jetty) or Pantai Cenang.
It was our first trip (my wife and me) to Langkawi. We chartered a boat from Casa Delma hotel for an island hopping excursion to some of the small islands off the main Langkawi coastline. The boat driver a Mr. Amir, a local malay of Langkawi says the best beach is at Beras Basah Island (Pulau Beras Basah-in Malays), approximately 10 mins speed boat ride from the hotel. We were taken there and the white soft sand and the idyllic clear waters were truly awesome. The island is uninhabited, full of lush green tropical forest in its vicinity and I think it would have made a great escapade for jungle trackking, which unfortunately we were not prepared for. We had a great time swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing and will certainly come here again.
We visited as part of the Island Hopping Tour, and were sadened by the condition of the beach and the disregard for the great beauty of this place. People had dumped their (used) disposable nappies on the beach, to be washed into the water, rubbish laying everwhere, a broken toilet seat on the water line and a rubbish dump in the grass. We didnt fee like getting into the water. Don"t Malaysians care about their beautiful country? The sooner the natural environment is respected for the asset it is, the better.
Literally, Pantai Teluk Yu means "Bay of Sharks' Beach," but you can rest assured, the waters are shark free and
completely tranquil. The peaceful, sunny beach with its dense forest backdrop is very picturesque and great for photographs. Although ...
