PANTAI PASIR HITAM - LANGKAWI

 

 

PANTAI PASIR HITAM

KEDAH - NORTH OF MALAYSIA

 

 

 

At the Pantai Pasir Hitam (Black Sand Beach) is a distinctive beach streaked with black sand. This place of interest in Langkawi is found at the western sector of Tanjung Rhu whereby the beach is only a few meters wide and located at the foot of a five meters drop. You might think that you have to be a rocket scientist to explain the black sand on the beach but in actual fact, the black streaks are due to the deposits of mineral oxides coming from a nearby spring. The scenery here is different to the other beaches in Kedah since this place is dotted with large boulders.

 

All sizes of fishing boats can be seen moored at the specially designed Y-shaped jetty built along the beach. To cater for the convenience of tourists, there are a variety of food stalls and souvenirs shops selling traditional handicrafts.
