Island hopping in Langkawi. Discover island hopping in Langkawi. You can go by group or family. Package is available. Pulau Dayang Bunting, Beras Basah. While most of your time will be spent on the main island of Pulau Langkawi, some of the most beautiful natural sites of the archipelago are on the many tiny, undeveloped islands surrounding it. An island hopping tour allows you to see this unspoilt tropical island paradise and takes you to some of the best beaches and swimming spots.
One spot that is both natural wonder and an invigorating place to take a dip is the freshwater lake on Pulau Dayang Bunting (The Island of the Pregnant Maiden). The name of the island originates both from the silhouette that it carves into the sky and the legend that surrounds the deep waters of the lake.
Even if you are not a believer in the magical powers of the lake, the vast sandstone cliffs, dark green forest and the rounded hilltops reflecting in the mirror-like emerald lake are enough reason to pay it a visit.
Pulau Beras Basah, (Wet Rice Island) is one of the last stops on the way back. The island was so named when a boat carrying rice capsized on its shore in a terrible tropical storm, said to have been brought on by the sailors’ indifference to asking the blessing of Dayang Bunting. Its golden beach, fringed with clear blue water is now a popular picnic spot and sea sport equipment is for hire.
