Nice lake, watch out for cheeky monkeys

We swam in the lake and it was so refreshing! Very beautiful and clean natural attraction. The rent life-jackets, water boats, and it is a great fun place!

We were dropped here as part of an Island Hopping tour and left for an hour. 20 mins would have been adequate to walk up the stairs, past the slightly illegible signs (in English, translated at the bottom which had discoloured) and bad plastic tigers, to a load of floating pontoons on the lake peppered with dire warnings about swimming...

Beautiful location, fresh water lake surrounded by hills. Little uneven walkway. They charge 6 ringgit per person as entry fee. Good for swimming and pedal boating.

Rent a kayak / paddleboat and within a few minutes you are in the middle of the freshwater lake on your own, with only the sounds of the forests and your own breathing. There are scuba rental options too! Combine it with a trip to Kilim Geoforest Park and Beras Basah Island for a full day tour!

Be cautios because of nasty monkeys that tries to grab bags, food and anything they find attractive. One can swim in this lake, there are kayaks and catamarans. The view is magnificient. A lot of interesting informaton about the soil and this island you can find on the route to the lake. Recommended.

The lake is beautiful and very nice to take a dip in. It's deep so be sure you can swim or have a life jacket on if you don't. Firstly, be sure to get there as early as possible as it crowds up VERY quickly and once the crowd sets in it loses it's serenity, sadly. Having said that if... More

A 7 minutes hike up to the lake in the middle of the island. No worries on the hike as pathways and rails provided Lake water was cool, calm and fresh, very nice to swim Life jackets also available for purchase (optional) for RM5 Monkeys were also hanging around but don't worry they won't disturb you, just Monkeys being friendly
