Pantai Kok is a tranquil beach on the beautiful island of Langkawi.
This soothing beach is to be found about 24.8 km away from Kuah, on the
western tip of Langkawi Island. Being located in a secluded area, it is
the best site for honeymooners and solitude seekers. It is characterized
by silky sands and shimmering waters. In its virgin locale, your eyes
will generously feast on profuse greenery and sailing yachts.
Apart from its picturesque setting, one more thing that is associated
with this beach is Summer Palace, a replica of Thai Palace. The
marvelous location of the beach has attracted people, including movie
producers, to spend some quality time here. And that's how, the Summer
Palace came into being at Pantai Kok. This Palace was created for the
shooting of the famous English movie, Anna and the King. The set is
still there as the memento of the film.
People with adventurous bent of mind can go for jungle trekking and
have a close glimpse of some local animals. For sure, Kok Beach is
quieter than the Cenang Beach and that's why, it makes the ideal place
for you to fall in and renew your bonds with your loved ones. Besides,
it's a place to admire the spectacular view of yachts and sailboats
while you laze amid white sands and swaying palms. To put in succinct
terms, Pantai Kok is a certainly a beautiful place that is worth
visiting on your trip to Langkawi.
