Langkawi Malaysia sailing charters

LANGKAWI

Introduction

Known by a handful of yachties who make the area their home, Langkawi and her 99 surrounding islands are a paradise waiting for discovery.

For those who love nature and to leave the crowds behind these are the perfect cruising grounds for you. Be amongst the first to discover this truly unique and new sailing destination!

By the way did you also know Langkawi is a duty free island? This makes cocktails at sunset a cheap affair, not to mention all those yummy imported foods you can stock the galley with! Only 4 of these islands are inhabited, the largest of which is Langkawi.

Langkawi is a very easy place to reach, so click on the link following to see details on our “getting there” page.

Geographically the area is very old and due to the foresight of the Malaysian government most of the nature is intact. In fact 2/3rds of the island is dominated by forest covered mountains, hills and natural vegetation. 

It’s a nature lover’s paradise and jungle, forest, white sandy beaches, romantic coves and native fauna are just some of the things one can expect to see here.

Chartering your own boat has to be the only way to fully enjoy the area so please don’t hesitate to contact us for suggested itineraries or click on the link following for ideas of where you can sail to!
