Nightlife in Langkawi

The nightlife in Langkawi is a combination of lively bars, cocktail lounges and cosy pubs serving affordable drinks within a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Whether you’re looking for a romantic setting for two, or a venue with live, late night entertainment, the nightlife in Langkawi offers something for everyone. Although fairly modest compared with nearby Phuket and Koh Phangan, Langkawi has plenty of beach front bars and lounges to keep you entertained through the night.

Pantai Cenang & Pantai Tengah

The busiest and most populated areas of the island, Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah, provide the best nightlife in Langkawi. The shore is lined with numerous beach bars over looking the Andaman Sea, many which stay open until the early hours. Chill with your favourite cocktail at one of the many bars along the sea front and watch the sunset in the distance. Then, as the evening progresses and the bars become busier, live musicians or DJ’s will soon make an appearance.

Pantai Cenang has a good selection of cocktail bars. The perfect venue for catching up with friends over a few drinks and a bite to eat. Pantai Tengah is great for a whole range of live music including bands, vocalists and acoustic freestyle. You’ll not find any nightclubs on Langkawi. They are almost non existent. You can however, find the odd few dancing venues that will stay open a little later than most others.

Other Areas

Choose from a wide variety of bars that stretch Langkawi’s unspoiled coastlines. From hillside bars over looking the Andaman Sea, to beach front bars where you are meters from the waters edge. Burrow your feet into the soft sand as you sip on your favourite drink. Dance with friends on the beach under a blanket of stars. Each bar offers something different and unique. Langkawi is the perfect holiday destination for everyone. From young families and backpacker groups, to solo travellers and couples.
