Langkawi UNESCO Global Geopark comprises all 99 islands of the archipelago, with three designated geoforest parks, and a recently designated biogeotrail. These are Machinchang Cambrian Geoforest Park (4,274 ha), Kilim Karst Geoforest Park (4,354 ha), Dayang Bunting Marble Geoforest Park (8,261 ha), and Kubang Badak BioGeoTrail (50 ha).


Located in the east of Langkawi is the largest of the three main parks, Kilim Karst Geoforest Park, named after the river that runs through it, and the rock strata that predominate. The park is dominated by mangrove forests and picturesque karstic formations created through the dissolution and erosion of the limestone from the Setul Formation, which have produced numerous sea stacks, sea arches and pinnacles. The mangrove forests have created an environment for several rare species of flora and fauna such as the limestone cycad, which grows on vertical cliff faces, bright yellow sea hibiscus, and the iconic brahminy kite and sea eagle.
