AsiaRooms.com divulges the Langkawi Water Festival could be on the agenda for holidaymakers heading to Malaysia next month.

Taking place from April 10th to 12th, this annual event is essentially a celebration of water sports and games based on one of the island's most popular beaches, Pantai Cenang.

People using hotels in Langkawi should find plenty to enjoy here, as kayaking, yachting, parasailing, boating and jet skiing events are all included in the festival programme.

The occasion also gives visitors a chance to experience Pantai Cenang, which is famous in Malaysia for its three-kilometre stretch of unbroken white sand.

As the most picturesque beach on the island, this is also where many of the hotels are located and the area has become a thriving hub with excellent amenities, shopping facilities and nightlife.

Located on the south side of the island, Pantai Cenang is close to the airport and about 25 kilometres away from Kuah town, the capital of Langkawi.

A popular attraction among people staying in this area is Underwater World Langkawi, one of the largest marine and freshwater aquaria in Asia.

The centre contains over 4,000 varieties of fish and visitors can observe sharks, stingrays and other creatures of the sea through walk-through tunnels.
