- Cool off at Langkawi Water Festival

February 11, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News can reveal that extreme sports fanatics should find plenty to keep them entertained when the Langkawi Water Festival returns to the Malaysian resort.

The event offers an opportunity for holidaymakers to cool off in the tropical heat by engaging in and watching some high-octane watersports.

A diverse range of competitions has been planned, giving visitors the chance to enjoy everything from jet ski racing to parasailing.

Kayaking, yachting, boat rides, fishing and many other "fantastic activities" have also been promised by Malaysia's tourism ministry.

The Water Festival will take place from April 8th to 11th 2011 at Pantai Cenang, one of the most popular beaches in Langkawi.

It is located on the south-western tip of the island around 25 km from the town of Kuah and offers a variety of entertainment, including an abundance of local bars and eateries.

However, it is the long stretch of powdery sand and crystal-clear blue water that have traditionally made the area such a hit with travellers during the peak tourist season.

Anyone keen to seek out Langkawi hotels could head to and choose the Tanjung Rhu Resort Langkawi, which is around a 30-minute drive from Pantai Cenang and also boasts its own private 2.5 km beach.
