Pantai Pasir Hitam (Black Sand
The primary geological compositions of the islands
are of granite, limestone, shale and mudstone. Granite is predominant.
One phenomenon, at Pantai Pasir Hitam near Air Hangat
and Kuala Teriang, which always baffles visitors to Langkawi is, however,
easily explained. The heavy concentration of minerals such as tourmaline,
ilmenite and zircon with granite makes the beach noticeably black!
