The 99 tropical islands in the Langkawi archipelago offer a fabulous sailing holiday with luxury resorts, beautiful beaches and idyllic bays.

Langkawi is an archipelago of 99 tropical islands off the north-western coast of Malaysia. The archipelago has some of the world's most pristine rainforests, limestone and karst formations, caves with stunning stalactites and stalagmites, and among the world's most beautiful beaches washed by clear emerald waters teeming with marine life. It’s a unique paradise for a sailing holiday and Langkawi was declared a Geopark by UNESCO in 2007.

The outstanding natural landscape is covered in lush ancient rainforest and framed by blue skies. The snorkelling is superb, especially at Coral Garden at Pulau Payar Marine Park. The island of Langkawi is an exotic sailing holiday destination that offers world-class accommodation and amenities sitting side by side with idyllic beaches, ancient rainforests and quaint villages. Head up the thrilling cable car to the summit of Mount Mat Cincang - Langkawi's second highest mountain - for an unrivalled view of the entire main island and beyond.

In the May to October season, the SW winds pick up, though sailing is still sheltered in most of the cruising area, but there is more rainfall during this period. The area is tidal with a range of approximately 2m.
