The beach are very beautiful and white sand along the beach. When you walk along the beach, you can see the tropical isaland paradise and clear blue seas and tiny secluded coves enclosed by clusters of rocks.

The World

Warm water great fun, the island is a few minutes from the mainland Penang. Have to get there by boat obviously. We went with a guide who charged us a ridiculously low price I think it's was like $150 for 6 of us and that included free drinks and barbecue (prawns fish chicken and many other wonderful eateries ) it's one I those places you just know you will never forget. Being in the water and looking at the entire island from a distance and seeing the tall trees in the background and the island in its entirety just takes your breath away and you instantly know that the trip was worth it. It's even better when you with the ones you love. Thank you again Azri for taking us out on that very special day and providing us with a 10star experience . Just thinking about the place puts me in a state of calmness every time. Go see for yourself and. Tell me. Water I not as clear as you would get by Barbados but hey everything else is fantastic

It takes an hour to trek to Teluk Duyung @ Monkey Beach from the main entrance of the forest reserve. Book your return via a fisherman's boat at the carpark entrance for MYR80 per trip. It'll save you the return trek.
Some enterprising locals have set up drinks stands so you can purchase a cold drink after your hike. You can even rent banana boats and jet skis if you are feeling adventurous.

Somewhat a secret unless you know the locals. White sands, crystal waters, and surrounded with lush vegatation. Located along the coast of Batu Ferranghi in Penang, Malaysia, Monkey Beach can be accessed by small boat or sailboard and it worth spending a day just relaxing. Bring a picnic and enjoy getting away from the crowds. Just as an FYI you will share the waters with lots of marine life including jellyfish. Should you get stung ask a local how to prevent any pain and trust the answer!

这里环境不错,海水相当干净。可以坐船或爬山到达。有一大片的空地可以享受娱乐,夜晚也有美丽的风景。这里也有得观看乌龟。如果需要服务员讲解过程,在到达前需要申请。
