Prepare for the mangrove and cave investigation tour after breakfast.
A large mangrove forest is on the northeastern shore of Langkawi, behind Tanjung Rhu beach. Given that the island's forest is surrounded by cliff-like stone outcroppings, a boat trip through it is a very fascinating tour. There is an abundance of wildlife to be observed in addition to the beautiful surroundings. Start at the Tanjung Rhu dock, and your voyage will take you through several mangrove-lined rivers, past a cave, and into a broader bay where you will witness large boats from all over the world anchored in a secure area. There are also a few fish farms in the bay.
These have grown to be such well-liked tourist destinations that the specimens that are currently on exhibit look more like pets than animals that are raised to be served on menus at nearby restaurants. A unique "eagle feeding" display is also part of the tour, as raw chicken viscera is utilized to entice the renowned brown eagles of the island to approach the boat. It's worth making sure your tour includes it because it's really great.
Along with eagles, you might also see bats, spectacled monkeys, and large monitor lizards. Another common stop on the tour is the cave home to the bats. We crossed the open ocean to return to Tanjung Rhu Cove, marking the end of our adventure. Along the way, you may witness more stunning rock formations, local fishermen (our party even purchased some fish and prawns straight from one of the boats), and eagles.
