We joined a trip called “Island hopping” and saw “the pregnant maiden”, eagles catching fishes and stopped also at Beras Basah Island for a swim. The beach was nothing extra except for the monkeys. They were used to people and they came very close to you and really tried to steal from you. Sitting in my swimsuit with my pants... More

I am amazed at other reviews . The first thing that met us as we left boat was a burst bag of litter . Then litter everywhere . Yes a nice beach but no amenities - no shop / toilets or any other facilities . Water cloudy and dirty looking An hour was too long .

Spent only an hour here (as a part of the island hopping tour). The beach is quite beautiful and not dangerous at all. Only concern that it was a bit crowded. Biggest issue is that there are NO TOILETS here, and no changing rooms.

The beach was beautiful, the water was great! Not too deep not too shallow and there's a water sports shack providing from life jackets, snorkeling gear to para-sailing. I paid RM10 and got myself a life jacket. I was told that the water though seemed clear was not ideal for snorkeling, but there is a pier in a side of... More

I remind you not to visit the island during low tide, do visit the place in the morning or in the afternoon.. When the tide is low, there are only limited area for you to swim because there are so many pointy corals underneath that you might step on it.. I injured my toe and it hurts like hell, and... More

This the best tour to do in Langwaki. Beatiful white sand beach and the lake it is interisting to see because it was a cave. The speed boat is very fast, its impossible to take pictures inside the boat and the time was not enough just 4 hours. I recommend do the tour during the morning because the sun was... More

On arrival at the airport, we were greeted by people who were shoving papers to us, advertising car rentals or offer sightseeing services. A pamplet on island hopping attracted us and we called the agency up to go island hopping the next day. On the way to Beras Basah Island, we passed Pulau Singa Besar where we can watch eagles...

Long and Unspoilt Beach with Clear Water (Part of 3 Island Hopping Tour). If you Like Nature and are beach goer than this place is recommended. Take walk on the beach; feel the calmness of the whole place. Very refreshing experience for people visiting from Big Cities. Couples will Enjoy more; i guess. Warning: Monkeys are near by; if you...
