A rather eerie legend shadows Pantai Tengkorak. Some locals believe that a giant whirlpool awaits unwary ships just off the Langkawi islands at the spot where the Straits of Malacca join the Indian Ocean and the Andaman Sea. The whirlpool is said to have swallowed countless number of vessels and deposited the skulls of the crew and passengers at Pantai Tengkorak (Skull Beach). The bone fragments of ancient mariners were found scattered at Tanjung Tulang, while parts of the ships washed up on Pantai Pasir Hitam. Fact or fiction, visiting this mysterious beach is not to be missed.
