Bar in Pulau Langkawi

Perched on a wave-lashed rocky outcrop between Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah, this is an exhilarating spot for a sundowner. Expect a full bar, a good wine selection, and cocktails a class above those mixed on the beach below (from RM18).

The largely Malaysian dinner menu includes whole baked fish, plus Western dishes such as pistachio-crusted salmon (mains RM65 to RM80).
