The first island was Beras Basah Island, where we did some snorkeling and sat on the beach.

We then set off for Dayang Bunting Island. Which translates to Island of the Pregnant Maiden. Along the way, we saw the pregnant maiden herself.

On the way back to Langkawi, we stopped to hang out on the beach of another island – no name for this island.
