An mangrove island with many unique mangrove species especially the Nyireh trees which hardly seen in many places nowadays. It is an inhabitant mangrove island with story which is right across Kukup town. You can take a short boat ride to the Park, which cost Rm5.00/person inclusive of visit to fish farm, from the Kukup Jetty. A stroll along the... More

I went to Kukup Jetty (not exactly Pulau Kukup) last year on 16th of September 2014 and there were nothing much there, just a fishing village with two rows of overpriced seafood restaurants overlooking the sea trying to bait money from tourists. I went into one of the restaurant (forgot the name but not the busiest one) and seated waiting... More

A visit for nature lovers but need to improve in terms of accommodation to encourage tourists to stay longer and enjoy their trip.

the good thing.. this is the place for mangrove tree island in Malaysia.. I'm attracted to the Arboretum.. the path that near to the small mangrove tree. A lot of project on mangrove tree plantation from outside. This is stress releasing by looking at green leaves.. easy to go to the island by boat with RM5 for go and return..... More

This place appeared on the tourist map several years ago because tour operators ran out of options to impress and to inject a dose of curiosity to tourists. Because it was mentioned in tour brochures, tourists tell themselves they must go. Kukup is out of the way; it is a desolated village by the sea just like the many hundreds... More

The fishermen village need big clean... More
