Kayaking on Saltwater Lake


This is a unique kayaking tour where the boat will begin its journey from Tanjung Rhu jetty to the Eastern part of Langkawi. The kayaking begins on the coastline with scenic limestone outcrops before entering a tunnel towards a saltwater lake. We will explore on the saltwater lake before continuing on the scenic coastline until we greet the mangroves. From there, we will paddle on a small section of tributary through the mangroves before the boat picks us up. A stop for a swim on a beach can be an option.
