Explore Cave of Legends (Gua Cerita) – This Cave is famous for an important archaeological discovery. Gua Cerita, which is made up of two limestone caves lying above the other and facing the sea, is steeped in fables of mystery and romance. On its walls are ancient inscriptions written in Jawi, which are yet to be deciphered. Found at about 7.7 meters from the cave’s entrance, these inscriptions supposedly date from 1754 during the reign of Sultan Mohamed Jiwa II of Kedah.
Feeding to the eagles is a spectacular, exciting experience and photo opportunity for all. Our boat will cruise to a very beautiful and special spot where you will have a chance to see a flock of eagles swooped in from nowhere. The amazing thing about these magnificent predators is their precision. Circling eagles swoop down with their sharp talons fully extended as they pick the pieces of chicken meat nimbly off the surface. They skim over the water’s surface effortlessly before flying off into the trees to feast on their ‘catch’. There are various types of eagles here; the Brahmin kites (46cm) arrive from all directions. These raptors are generally chestnut brown in color, and white on the head and breast. The White-bellied Sea Eagle (71cm) is the largest of the species present. The sea eagle’s head and under parts are white with grey back and wing-coverts. Its impressive wingspan lifts the eagle high above the crowd and is usually spotted soaring in higher altitudes. These birds are the lords of the skies. Langkawi (Lang = eagle and kawi = reddish brown stones found here) is named after the Red Eagles that have made their home in the crags and crevices of the islands long before any human set foot ashore.
