Offbeat beach destinations to visit in Malaysia

Don’t just finish your beach walk in Malaysia by visiting the touristy spots. Hit the not-so-known places too for a complete experience of Malaysia’s divine beaches.

Pangkor Island (off central west coast, with airport)
It is not quite as well-known as Tioman Islands, but this low profile beach vacation spot is gaining more fame and name as the days go by. It is situated off the country’s west coast and when you arrive here, you will be greeted by unsullied golden sand.

Pantai Teluk Belanga (Emerald Bay)
Emerald Bay is on a privately owned island near Pangkor Island and finds itself listed in the top 10 beaches in the world. A perfect crescent, the golden sand and emerald green waters make for a soothing sight. It may be known commercially, but yet remains in our list of offbeat beach choices because of how its wildness and natural beauty has remained unaffected.

Datai Beach in Datai Bay
It is secluded, it is high-end and it is absolutely gorgeous. The beautiful sandy stretch of Datai is what people refer to as home when they walk into any of the swanky resorts there, such as Datai Langkawi or The Andaman.

Travelling in Malaysia and visiting these beautiful beaches is made easier by the fact that it is well connected by buses. And you can book the bus ticket online too. Check redbus for added convenience.
