"JOBS FILL YOUR POCKETS BUT ADVENTURES FILL YOUR SOUL."
beach clean up, Langkawi, Malaysia
11 - 17 APRIL 2022
This stunning archipelago of 99 islands in the Andaman Sea off the coast of Malaysia is classed as a UNESCO world geopark, with a wealth of un-touched primary jungle and un-inhabited islands. When we started exploring here we were moved by the huge impact mankind has had on this incredible ecosystem. Immediately we headed back to the mainland, picked up a boat, filled it with volunteers and started clearing one little stretch of beach. A few days later we dug ourselves some beach seats in the sand, cracked open a beer and bathed in a warm sense of satisfaction and achievement. It's become an addiction and we now clear some of the most beautiful remote beaches in the world.
Partnering with local environmental groups you can join in our adventure, with evening activities, beach BBQ's, slack lining, and scuba diving, this trip is every bit enjoyable as it is soul fulfilling.

Day 1 – Touch down in Langkawi International Airport (LGK) and transfer to the Meritus Pelangi Resort and Spa. You’ll be staying in a spacious wooden chalet with private balcony, landscaped gardens and a private beach. Here you'll meet your fellow travellers and have a chance to refresh yourself after the flight. After a quick briefing you can choose to relax by the pool, mingle at the oceanfront bar or wonder along Cenang’s palm fringed Beach.
Day 2 – And we get to ‘work’… although not like you know it. Flip flops and sun-glasses on as we ride the waves on the 45 minute boat ride to our chosen island. Anything we do to improve the condition of this little part of paradise is welcomed and the locals appreciate it, often coming along to help out. Lunch will be a delicious Nasi Goreng wrapped in a
banana leaf (no plastic for us) and no one will mind if you spend some time swimming or snorkelling the coral reefs just off shore.
Day 3 – Our routine continues. Mornings are slow and sleepy, days are full of wonder and evenings are for socialising at the beachfront bars.
Day 4 – Time for something a little different as we spend the day scuba diving at one of the archipelagos many coral reefs. With so much biodiversity just beneath the surface we get to appreciate what we’ve been protecting.
Day 5 – Our last time heading off to the islands but this time it’s a little different. As the sun sets we enjoy a BBQ feast, tell tales around the fire and give the island back to the animals (just a lot cleaner).
Day 6 – We visit the Kilim Geoforest Nature Park with it’s mangrove forests, lagoons & beaches, river tours and floating restaurant. The group has a chance to re-gather by the pool and we lay on a luxurious celebration dinner.
Day 7 – We pack up and reflect on an experience we'll never forget. Already scheming for our next sustainable holiday.
Sustainability is something we are passionate about having seen first-hand the damage humans are doing to the environments we explore. We behave responsibility as we travel and strive to strike the balance between humans and nature. All our cleaning fluids are biologically degradable so they don't contaminate the soil or erode the coral, and we practice a 'leave no trace' policy ensuring we leave every site healthier than we found it.
