What people are saying:

Black Sand Beach Langkawi, located four kilometres southwest of Tanjung Rhu Beach, offers memorable photo opportunities and a peaceful retreat from the island’s often crowded areas. A 20-minute drive from the Langkawi Cable Car, it’s a popular hangout spot among locals, especially during weekends and public holidays.Despite its name, the beach is actually a mix of black and white sand, which some locals believe to be the result of a centuries-old curse laid by a mermaid because a fisherman had stolen her ring. Others claim that it’s soil from the rice paddy fields that were burned by farmers back in 1821.
