20 Cenang Beach and Telaga Seafood Restaurant, Langkawi

Possibly the busiest stretch of seaside on Langkawi island but the scene is entirely different walking further down the sandy shore towards Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort  which is a paradise of serenity as you can read from my earlier post.

Cenang Beach, Langkawi

Jalan Pantai Cenang
(Cenang Beach Road) is lined with small hotels, eateries and touristy shops, left and right. The Underwater World is located here too.  Hidden behind all these is Pantai Cenang, a beautiful beach where stunning sunsets can be seen. Besides several restaurants offering romantic evening dining experiences, the place is a hive of watersport activities with a spot of kite flying and powered paragliding going on.

The weather was a bit gloomy with rain clouds converging over the sky above us but fortunately, it didn't start raining in earnest until late evening.

I'm not into anything that makes my heartbeat go haywire so I stuck with a relaxing lovey-dovey walk, breathing fresh salty air, taking the scenery in and people-watching - all this with a cup of iced yoghurt mango drink in hand. We watched the sun go down.

Night had fallen by the time we decided to hunt for dinner. We stepped into Telaga Seafood Restaurant, pleased to see a nice outdoor setting. The waiter ushered us to a cosy hut. It was pleasantly mosquito free although I wondered if it was also Guardian's Buzz Away spray at work. I had insisted that we rub that on before venturing out to the beach.

We ordered two jumbo prawns but that was out of stock so it was replaced with smaller ones at their recommendation. When the dish arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to see the largest I had ever eaten. I cannot imagine what 'jumbo' would be like - it was an exciting thought though. These were bigger than my hand. Anyway, it was exquisite. Nothing like fresh seafood on an island holiday.

The fried grouper which was covered with a sweet and sour sauce was as tasty. Halfway through our meal, sweet music permeated the air in the form of a live performance. Top that with friendly staff and fast service, it was truly a lovely experience dining here.

  3. Your sunset photos are simply amazing and beautiful with the golden rays. It always made me appreciate and reflect when the day is over. I enjoyed my stay at Langkawi too and it was more relaxing than walking around my hometown Penang!
