Pantai Cenang is the most popular place with tourists. The gem of the lively area is beautiful Pantai Cenang Beach. Idyllic white sands stretch ahead, lined by the turquoise ocean to one side, and coconut and casuarinas trees on the other. Beachgoers can select from a number of tempting beach and water activities, such as boat tours, jet-skiing, and parasailing.
Plenty of budget and mid-range accommodations, as well as several upscale hotels and resorts, are located just moments from the beach, boasting sensational views. Meanwhile, Jalan Pantai Cenang Road is bursting with shops, restaurants, and spas. Mornings are lazy with many shops closed until 10am, and just a select few eateries open for breakfast. The vibrant nightlife stretches into the small hours, with plenty of restaurants and bars open late along both the main road and the beach. Exciting tourist attractions in Pantai Cenang include Underwater World and the Rice Museum.
