When to go
April - October
December - February
Langkawi — a name that comes from words that mean “beauty” and “innumerable”— is the ideal region to visit during a yacht charter in Malaysia. This archipelago boasts about 100 islands that, for centuries, became the home of pirates who favored the hidden coves, dense jungles and towering outposts. Today, the places that those men used for hiding and lookout spots are some of the most coveted destinations for yacht chartering. The solitude and beauty remain the same, with photo opportunities in the mangrove forests and along the soaring limestone cliffs. The feeling of being alone is very much the same, and very much appreciated. Beaches here are beautiful, and since 2007, the main Langkawi Island has had UNESCO World Geopark status. Several of its parks are included in the designation, all of them available for hiking and exploring. Have your camera ready, because you might see hairy-nosed sea otters, macaque monkeys or monitor lizards. Also a wonderful spot is Dayang Bunting, where Malaysia’s largest freshwater lake offers another opportunity for water sports, hiking and lush scenery. Enjoy a morning here before returning to your charter yacht for a late lunch aboard and some afternoon saltwater fun such as snorkeling, swimming and kayaking.
