Situated near the equator, Langkawi experiences a tropical climate that is consistently hot and humid throughout the year. Due to its location in the Malaccan Straits of the north-western coast of the Peninsular Malaysia, Langkawi does not experience extreme climate changes that other islands in the Andaman Sea are susceptible to.

Langkawi has two distinct seasons, the dry and the rainy. January to April marks the dry season and high tourist season. The temperature averages 30°C during the day and 28°C at night. The pleasant weather and relatively little rainfall provide the perfect conditions for exploring the island and surrounding waters.

The rainy season usually begins in September and can last into early December. During this time, storms are unpredictable, causing some rougher waters and winds. The average daytime temperatures are about 26°C and intermittent showers allow for some sunshine.
