The seawater is clean. Enjoy the banana boat and canoeing. The owner Mr & Mrs Lim are very accommodating to our request. The toilet seat is too short and small. Most of all, enjoy the fireworks and the stars glittering at night.

Crowded hot and very stuffy as they dont ban smoking in he waiting area. Bus ride to Kelong is ok. Usually an old bus but no major complains. Some people get nervous... More
