This used to be a heavenly place, but now things have relaxed: cars are now parking on the beach - formally a stunning view, too many 'shops' have appeared in the past year. There is now a lot more rubbish around! (as you drive past the 2 'super hotels' the amount of rubbish and desolation at the rear of the... More

A great drive up a long winding road that ends at the top of the hill and a tower you can pay 10rm to view the entire island from. Better view than from the cable car and wayyy cheaper, no lines and no touristy crap. Also a little cooler at the top and the way up. Go early to avoid... More

Nice view, white sand a small-small green islands popping out the sea like rocks. We were at the farthermost portion of tanjung rhu resort beach which was open for public. Just few ppl there (mid march) You can also take a private mangroove river tour from there, one hour was 250 RM.

Spent two hours here - admiring the views, and went on a one hour ATV self-drive convoy tour of the forested areas and the rubber plantation. The path we drove along was no wider than 4 feet, partly paved, partly rough (perfect for ATV). Have recommended this to others already.

Since most of the tourist go for Cenang Beach this beach is very quite and you can spent a romantic afternoon here. Not so many hotels / inns and also restaurant available tough.. Go for it if you are searing for less crowded place.

A beautiful quiet beach at the top of the island. You really need a car or scooter to get to it but it is worth it when you get there.

To get away from the crowds and motorized water sports visit this beautiful beach. You have to go through a check point and promise to follow the many rules relating to the beach. Just say yes and then continue down to the beach. It is hot and the sun is very strong, so pay to rent a sunbed under an... More
