Underwater World

Underwater World Langkawi
The Underwater World Langkawi is located at Pantai Cenang, a popular beach on the island. It features both fresh and salt water fish and other forms of marine life. More than 5,000 types of marine life are exhibited in more than 100 tanks of different sizes. Visitors can walk through the 15-metre tunnel and enjoy a spectacular view of the exhibits - a giant tank that houses large marine species such as sharks, stingrays, groupers and green turtles . Underwater gardens of weeds and sea plants together with exotic fishes and exhibits of fossils and shells add to the range of interesting sights.


Tasik Dayang Bunting
Nestled amidst lush forested hills on an island south of Pulau Langkawi is Tasik Dayang Bunting (Lake of The Pregnant Maiden), the largest lake in Langkawi. The outline of hills and rocky outcrops on one side of the lake resembles the shape of a pregnant maiden lying on her back. However, the name of both the island and the lake is attributed to the legend of a lovely fairy princess who married an earthly prince. Her first child died shortly after birth. She was so sad and depressed that she buried the child in the crystal clear waters of the lake. Before she returned to her celestial abode, she blessed the waters so that any childless maiden who bathed in the lake would conceive thereafter.
