This beach is known for its name, black sand. The waters are still crystal clear and not black, thankfully.

One of my pit stop during my day trip to Langkawi was Pantai Pancur Hitam and I have to say, I was totally disappointed. Why?
First, I think the beach had nothing else to offer except the black sands. And even that was totally disappointing! I think it was more worth it to stay home instead of visiting this beach. Not to hate on it or anything, but the sands doesn't even look black from a fire and instead, it just looks genuinely dirty.
Next, there were too much thrash on the beach. I found a lot of empty plastic bottles, cans, some chip wrapper and even a condom on the beach. Man, what a way to ruin a scenery. Keep it up people!
Sarcasm aside, I don't think a visit to this beach would be worth your time. If I were you, I would rather spend my time on Langkawi to shop for some chocolates or alcohols since it is a duty free island.
The Black Sand Beach was one of those random stops my friends and I had over at Langkawi a.k.a. the jewel of Kedah. Though there isn't exactly anything sparkling about this particular jewel. I got curious as to the name Black Sand Beach. Was it really black sand? Well, no. It seems like any other normal beach.
This place is pretty dirty with a lot of trash here and there.Isn't there anyone taking care of this place or is there a party going on every night here? Well, since the beach was pretty dirty, we didn't bother going. We just took some pictures of the places and left.
