Jet Pilot

For us, after having spent almost a day jet skiing around the islands, we wanted to do something different, so we hopped on the jet pilot.

The jet pilot is similar to the donut ride. You sit on a donut shaped inflated tube, which is then towed by a jet ski at a high speed around the water. Its action packed and full of adrenaline. And don’t forget to hold on tight and enjoy the ride!

I have to admit – I was screaming my head off, but it was oh so much fun!

Banana Boating

If you think you’ve run out of water sport activities, think again. Banana boating is another fun water activity that Paradise 101 runs. You sit on an inflatable tube (shaped like a banana, hence the name) and the tube is towed by either a small boat or a jetski. Similar to the jet pilot experience, banana boating can be thrilling especially when the jet ski reaches a high speed.

While there are plenty of shaded spots on the island, there is also a good amount of sunny areas along the white sandy beach. Hop onto one of the beach chairs or lay your towel down on the sand, and enjoy some ‘me’ time sunbaking and taking it easy. There’s a gentle breeze that comes through off the ocean, making it oh-so relaxing.

Enjoy an Afternoon Nap in a Hammock

The best way to get around Langkawi is truly by hiring your own car. There’s minimal public transportation and taxis are limited. It’s quite easy to drive in Langkawi, so if you have your license, I highly recommend hiring a car. And if you do so, you definitely should check out GoCar.

GoCar is an on-demand car hire platform, which means that you can hire a car at any time of the day. Whether it’s per hour or per day, GoCar offers flexibility… meaning you only pay for what you use. Currently GoCar is available in over 50 locations across Kuala Lumpur and Langkawi in Malaysia.

  1. Oh wow. I have always wanted to do an inflatable water obstacle course. That looks so cool. Maybe now I just need to do it on Paridise 101. Is that too specific a dream?

  2. Truly it looks that one day on this Island is like a day in Paradise. I like the idea to control the access to island, not only because of the peace we need in order to truly enjoy a place, but even for the environment. Would imagine 10.000 a day going there? The island probably would sink….

    • Yup, they are all about maintaining the eco-friendly nature of this island, so have strict control over the number of guests visiting. This means it is peaceful and remains beautiful!

  3. The idea of a private island sure does sound enticing to me! I traveled to Langkawi a couple of years ago and reading this post made me miss my time there. It was truly a fun few days that I got to spend in Langkawi. I would love to go back again and see what’s new!

I haven’t even heard of some of these activities before but I would definitely do the zip lining and the floating obstacle course. The rest of the time , I ‘d relax in the hammock and on the beach.

  10. Oh my god, the Jet Pilot seems awesome!! I had never heard of that before, but I am all up for that now! The place kind of reminded me to a beach I went in Croatia, but it was pretty crowded there, so I loved the idea of not so many tourists around. And the prices are not bad either! Thanks for all the great tips!

  11. Vacationing at private island at Paradise 101 in Langkawi must be so fun and exotic. Zipline over Andamans would be so beautiful. Afternoon nap in hammock in exotic surrounding would be the best nap. You have taken beautiful pictures.

  13. Langkawi sounds so much fun! I always wanted to do that jet pilot ride, but doing it in Canada always seems futile – feel like it’s something that needs to be done in tropical waters under the sun. And the fact that it’s a private island is enough to entice me to visit!

  14. Paradise 101 looks amazing ! I would love to go to this kind of a private island and spend the day there relaxing or doing some water activities. Maybe I missed it in your post but I am wondering if one can stay overnight on this island or not ? Can you just go there for the day and have to take the boat back at night ?

  15. Wow, the island is definitely a little paradise for people who want to spend time in non crowded places. The azure blue beach and the lush greenery is such a pleasure to look at. What a great way to spend a day in the island, sunbathing, water sports and cocktails by the beach, one couldn’t ask fpr more on a vacation.
