Tanjung Rhu beach
As pellucid as the blue sky above, Tanjung Rhu beach has crystal clear and clean water with powdered sand that runs along its coastline. A corridor of dense trees marks the path to the beach and proves to be an interesting gateway to the shores. Hidden from the world and the claws of commercialisation, Tanjung Rhu beach maintains its serenity for travellers looking for some time in peace.The beach remains quiet, non-polluted and restful throughout the year with pleasant winds blowing from the sea. It does house a few local stalls that serve Langkawi’s favourite - mee gulung but nothing more that may obstruct its warm ambience. Adding to the exclusivity are luxury hotels that surround this beach in huge numbers.The high-end properties contribute in keeping the beach secluded, thus preserving its beauty. Rows of fragmentary limestone crags border the beach, further adding to its mesmerising beauty. The beach is easy to reach and has gained popularity because of its inhabitants like Four Seasons Resorts and Tanjung Rhu Resort. On a visit here, travellers are sure to understand why Tanjung Rhu beach is known as one of the best shorelines in Langkawi.
Hanging at a height of 2,170 feet between the two mountains, Langkawi Sky Bridge is counted among the longest cable-stayed bridges in the world. It stretches itself for 410 feet and has transparent sections on its pedestrian. These transparent sections not only let people enjoy the spectacular beauty of the surroundings but also the dense tropical forest underneath.
Situated on the peak of the second tallest mountain Mt. Mat Cincang on Pulau Langkawi, one can reach here with the help of the cable car ride. Starting at the ‘end’ of the cable car ride, you can hop on to the bridge after a 15 minutes walk from the dropping point. You must reach the place as early as possible as the bridge could accommodate only 200 people at one time.
Do not forget to bring your camera to capture all the picturesque scenes around you through the transparent windows of the cable car and from the parapet of the bridge. If it is the right season, then you may even catch the glimpse of the unique flora and fauna possessed by the island. However, do not miss the nearby restaurants around the sky bridge along with all the places and things you could grab on!
