Well, I went to Langkawi for a Christmas getaway with a friend, with the aim of simply sunbathing and not doing much else. So, I took only my mask and dive computer with me, knowing that at best I’d probably only do one day’s diving.

Just as well too, because there wasn’t a lot to recommend Langkawi as a dive location.

There were no dive shops on the island – the only dive operator who went to the local islands simply has a shack on Pantai Cenang and a runabout. And the viz is only a few metres at best. Β Not that either of those things put me off – I still went! It was lovely to get out on the water, and we did get to see a few seahorses, box fish and crabs.

There is a marine park you can go to – but I was told by the dive guys that, really, it was more trouble than it was worth (many snorkelling tourists; large groups etc). Happy to hear counter-stories though if anyone has any!
