Ninety-nine islands scattered across deep blue seas make-up Langkawi: resort haven, nature’s pet project and the ideal destination for those who are seeking to immerse themselves in the gifts that nature has to offer. In an attempt to make this natural beauty shine even brighter, Kilim Karst Geoforest Park was established by the Government of Malaysia.
Going by the names of Kilim Nature Park and Kilim Langkawi, the Geoforest Park is located at the northernmost part of the island, a distance of 23km away from popular tourist destination Berjaya Langkawi Resort. The park is spread over an area of one hundred square kilometres and extends all the way up to the river estuary.
This unique location of the park has ensured that a number of geological aspects can be found within it, including mangrove forests, lagoons and the world famous white beaches of Langkawi. Adding to this heady concoction are various flora and fauna: iguanas, tree crabs, and macaques.
On one side you will witness the swampy mangrove forest, beautiful and practical simultaneously, protecting the coastline erosion. On another, it is the limestone rock formations, a wonder to the eyes that have not seen such gigantic structure before. Engulfing this all is the tempting waters of the ocean, lapping away invitingly.
You will also be able to enjoy a mid-day snack or even a full-fledged lunch at the Park. Kilim Karst Geoforest Park offers a range of seafood dishes, creative and unique – all prepared right in front of your eyes. If you would rather not taste the amazing seafood whisked up the traditional Malaysian way, the menus offer plenty of other cuisine and dishes. The chefs are well experienced and would do their utmost to ensure that the meal you have is in line with the inexplicable beauty that surrounds you, making it the most harmonious union of senses.
