Batu Hampar Beach

Batu Hampar beach lies on the same coastline as Pantai Kok beach but appears to be more of a private one - courtesy the Century Langkawi beach resort that makes it look like its own.

The beach has coconut, mangroves and several other kinds of trees decorating the backdrop along with rock formations on both the ends. All of which together make for a picture-perfect destination. Moreover, the beach also has chairs and umbrellas for tourists to relax and enjoy their day in peace.
