Rocky coasts and peaks, caves and waterfalls are the best and most common natural exposures found in Langkawi islands. Some important exposures have been classified as geoheritage site, containing one or more types of geodiversities. So far, 97 geoheritage sites have been identified throughout Langkawi Geopark.

Some of the geosites are grouped together within a larger conservation unit called the geoforest parks while others are callsified into either geological monument or protected geosites. There are three geoforest parks and three geological monuments and at least 10 protected geosites in Langkawi. Most of these sites are located within permanent forest reserves and thus are protected under the conservation law of Peninsular Malaysia Forestry Department.
