Teluk Yu Cultural-Geotrail

Teluk Yu, or Shark Bay, is a scenic coastal area on the northern coast of Langkawi, known for its ancient granite tors. These impressive rock formations, dating back to the Permian period around 250 million years ago, are shaped by millions of years of physical and chemical weathering, creating a dramatic landscape against the serene waters of the Andaman Sea.

Easily accessible and located 25 kilometers from Kuah Town, Teluk Yu offers a variety of activities such as leisurely beach walks and photography, especially during sunrise and sunset.

The granite tors also provide crucial habitats for diverse marine and terrestrial species, contributing to the area’s biodiversity, and hold cultural significance in local folklore. This unique combination of geological marvels, natural beauty, and cultural richness makes Teluk Yu a must-visit destination for geology enthusiasts, nature lovers, and those seeking a peaceful coastal retreat.
