The history of the Langkasuka Boat Club (LBC) goes back to the early days of the Langkawi Lagoon. When the lagoon was first constructed the water was deep enough for boat moorings around the area of the Rebak Island Ferry landing.
Two shipping containers were brought in and a kitchen and bar were constructed between the two. This basic setup provided cold beers and simple food for the mooring sailors in the Lagoon. I hear it was quite the ‘scene’ in its day.
Time has passed and the containers have now been replaced with a timber and concrete building. The moorings fell prey to the silting-in of the lagoon. But in its current reincarnation the LBC still attracts sailors, hotel workers and tourists alike. It’s great place to wait for the incoming or outgoing Rebak Island Ferry or meet friends to enjoy the sea breeze and the view.
The beer is cold and served in freezing cold mugs and the kitchen puts out some very reasonable priced Thai ‘based’ food with a few simple western dishes. And the pool table is always popular with the hotel workers and supply staff that are waiting for the ferry or just relaxing on their way home.
The Langkasuka Boat Club is open 7 days a week from 12 noon until the last ferry and beyond (around midnight) The LBC is located just after or before the 4 Points by Sheraton Hotel depending on your direction of travel. Look for the signs for either the LBC or the Rebak Island Ferry. DIRECTIONS
