Tanjung Rhu is located on the north-west coast of Pulau Langkawi and offers a serene, secluded ambience. The sparkling sea is lined with soft, powdery white sand which is much less frequented than the beaches of more developed tourist areas. Meeting the bay at Tanjung Rhu is the Kilim River, home of the popular Kilim Geopark which can be explored on a boat tour.
Accommodation options in this area are few; however, there are a couple of wonderful luxury resorts, as well as some budget motels and homestays. Shopaholics may be disappointed, although there are several small, local shops lining the coastal road, selling clothing, souvenirs, and gifts. There is very little choice in the way of restaurants, although the resorts offer excellent waterfront restaurants, and you can discover street food stalls along the roadside.
Tanjung Rhu is ideal for travellers who crave serenity, away from the hustle and bustle of busier areas.
