The beach is nice but it could be much beautiful or calmer if there are not many tourists as too many people arrive on the same time from nearby island tours so that's a bit of a turndown for us. Especially when they didn't respect the nature by smoking, which pollutes the fresh air and cause hazard to us too!... More

We visited this island on an island hopping trip. It was the last one we visited and they gave us 1 hour to swim or snorkle. It was really nice and not too crowded. Nice beach with lots of monkeys. Make sure your bags are closed, because they will take everything out of it.

The most pirate-ish island I ever visited. Went there by jetski. We did our snorkeling here and I must say.. Clean, white beach and pristine water. If only I had my beer, I could hang out here all day!

Beras Basah Island is a tropical paradise with a golden sandy beach and water that is as blue as the sky itself. We had a great time on this island whilst island hoping and spent most of our time in the beautiful lush ocean waters. Great place to come and spend some quality time with friends and family.

We visited this beach as a part of our Island Hopping tour. Such a beautiful beach! White sand, Palm trees, clean and tranquil. It was not over crowded, maybe because it is not that easy to get to. You either have to charter a private boat or visit it on the island hopping tour. The children played in the sand... More

This beach is smaller and has slightly less people. It gets deep pretty fast, so take care. No toilet on the beach.

We visited the island as part of the island tour. The beach is clean and well looked after. Watch out for all the monkeys. They will open any unattended bags and steal food. The shop was closed. We took food and water as there is nowhere to buy these items. Swimming was good and with clear water. An island to... More

Beras Basah is the one of the best islands I have been to. We had a short stop here on our island hopping tour and how I wished we had spent longer, much longer time there. As I stepped on to the beach, I was instantly reminded of the scene where Jack Sparrow escapes a bunch of tribals chasing after... More

This is another stop on our island hopping tour. As there are less people here, the beach is better. You can also find some local deers on this island. Quite a clean and beautiful place.

The beach is nice, it's part of island hopping tour too, they will give an hour to explore same as Dayang Bunting Island, here got so much more monkeys which you need to beware of, and here doesn't have toilets.
