Pulau Langkawi Trip (Part 2) - Pulau Dayang Bunting + Pantai Beras Basah

8th May 2013

Today, we went on a ride in a motor boat to Pulau Dayang Bunting and Pantai Beras Basah. Apparently, we were only allowed one hour on each of the locations.

We reached Pulau Dayang Bunting.
We were required to hike up until we reached a spot where there's fresh water. There's a pond where we can dip our legs into and all the fresh water fishes will roamed around our feet. Pulau Dayang Bunting was also famous for it's legendary story where by the child of the pregnant woman whom died after 7 days was buried somewhere in the island.

After leaving Pulau Dayang Bunting, we headed to Pantai Beras Basah. On the middle of our journey, we managed to witness a herd of eagles waiting to be fed. Although it was not my first time witnessing an eagle, it does feel nice to see how eagles actually dashed to the surface of the water to catch their prey.

We reached Pantai Basah, and for the first time in my life, I tried the Banana Boat. We requested to be overturned so that we could fall into the sea.

We got wet and so, we decided to just swim around the beach. We returned to our motel to clean up around 2pm.
