Beaches in Malaysia – Where to Go for the Perfect Coastal Getaway

Malaysia, one of Southeast Asia's most rapidly developing nations, is a major tourist destination. Malaysia's islands have some stunning beaches that you should definitely consider visiting!

1

Kapalai Island Beach

Located about 10 minutes by boat from the famous Mabul Island, Kapalai Island is a large sand bank. The island is home to what is now referred to as Kapalai Island Beach, easily one of the most romantic and tranquil beaches in Malaysia. During low tide the beach is stunningly impressive, as there is ample white-sandy beach for visitors to enjoy. Secluded from anything that resembles civilization, save a single resort, this beach has become one of Malaysia's most recommendable locations for romantic getaways and honeymoons.

Perhentian Kecil Island (Long Beach)

So you are not looking for a romantic getaway or honeymoon? Then just head over to Perhentian Kecil Island; the backpacker's haven. The main beach here is Long Beach, which is generally filled with tourists just chilling out or working a sun tan. This pristine white sandy beach is also a great location for water sports. Given the island's reputation Long Beach does tend to have a bit of a party vibe to it, so it may not always be appropriate for families with kids, but if you are traveling with a bunch of friends and want to visit a stunning beach, Perhentian Kecil Island is the place for you.

Soft white sandy beach, clear turquoise waters, fringes of luscious coconut palms, and an amazing climate combine at Cenang to give you the perfect beach. The calm ambiance of the beach is ideal for just relaxing and sunbathing, while the water is well suited for many water sports. Oh and as an added incentive, the entire island of Langkawi is tax-free! If you are looking for accommodation in Sepang check out the AVANI Sepang Goldcoast Resort.

Sipadan Island Beach

You might wonder why Sipadan Island is mentioned on this list because it is not readily accessible by the general public and there are no hotels or resorts on the island either; just a solitary military base. However, Sipadan Island deserves mention on this list for two reasons; 1) it is considered to be among the top 3 diving sites in the world, and 2) its beaches are simply to die-for. If you are a diving enthusiast and are willing to rough it out without any modern conveniences, then a visit to Sipadan Island Beach is sure to be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life, as the beauty of the beach and the beauty beneath the ocean surface are sure to leave you thoroughly mesmerized.

Rawa Island Beach

Seclusion, pristine beach, great climate, turquoise waters and boundless serenity – Rawa Island Beach has got it all. This awe-inspiring beach is without a doubt one of the best beaches in the Southeast Asian region, and the fact that it offers seclusion makes it seem as if you are almost in paradise. You can choose to walk the soft powdery white sand of the beach and absorb nature's beauty, or you can wade into the warm waters and take a swim, or you can just chill out on the beach with a cocktail, taking it all in. But whatever you do, you can be assured that you won't find beauty like this in many other places of the world! It goes without saying that couples and honeymooners are sure to enjoy Rawa Island Beach.
