2. Pulau Dayang Bunting
According to legend, women who cannot conceive merely need to sip the water or to swim in the lake and be gifted with a child. You will see from far away why the island is called Pregnant Maiden Island—a straight translation of its Malay name. Hills and trees form the unacceptable shape of a pregnant lady resting on her back. The beautiful Tasik Dayang Bunting lake on the island is surrounded by verdant, tropical foliage. You’ll find yourself diving into its refreshingly clean waters.
3. Pulau Singa Besar
This island is a wildlife reserve that houses, for example, adults and monks, lizards, pavilions, mousedeers and even hornbills. While translated as “Big Lion Island,” no lions are in sight.
Pulau Singa Besar is not developed hence it does not have basic utilities or accommodation to preserve its pristine nature. Some wooden paths and signposted jungle paths are made for walking around the jungle while the quiet beaches are perfect for swimming and picnic. An expert nature guide can organise a one-day tour and local authorities will be permitted to camp overnight.
4. Pulau Beras Basah
In its translations to ‘Wet Rice Island,’ Pulau Beras Basah allegedly gives its guests clean, quiet, shallow sea and white sandy beautiful beaches thanks to the texture of its fine sand. After touring neighbouring islands and a family day out, it’s the perfect spot to unwind and relax. Lie by the beach and sunbathe, or rest in the shady trees — on this gorgeous island you have the choice! One shop offers premium pricing food and drinks. If you want to save money, be prepared with your own materials. There are no change and restroom facilities on the island, so be careful when you visit Pulau Beras Basah.
Best Time to go Island Hopping in Langkawi
Mornings are the best time to go for Island Hopping. Start your morning with a pleasant journey to the edge of the mangrove forests. Get prepared for your picturesque boat trip to the marshes where you will be welcomed by lush flora and fauna.
Tourists and travelers can even continue their trip by experiencing waves full of magnificent limestone formations by nature. There is no other place than here that can allow you to enjoy the golden sun when you look up into the sky and watch the majestic eagles around the stunning skylines.
Things to bring during Island Hopping
During some tours you can have a bottle of water, but remember that it takes an average of 4 hours to hop in Langkawi. We recommend that you bring along the following items:
– Hat (Remember to hold on to them while the boat moves)
– Bottle/s of water
– Snacks/ Picnic Basket
– Change of clothes if needed
Group Island hopping tour vs Private Boat
When you go on a group island hopping tour, chances are that you would not be given much time to enjoy the beauty and nature of each island. There is a schedule for each island visit to be followed with a restricted time.
But if you take a private boat, you will have the luxury to enjoy your own private ride and you will get ample time to spend on each island. You can either relax, go for a short swim and have a mini photoshoot session with no limitations!
Mode of Transport
When it comes to Island Hopping in Langkawi, you have two options. You can either go on a Jet Ski in style or a much safer choice is by boat. If you have photographic equipment like your camera and other gadgets, you wouldn’t want to risk dropping your things in the sea.
