My Friend's Place
Reviewed March 20, 2011

I was a solo backpacking traveller from Ireland. This was in my first week of travelling. So everything was quite daunting. I arrived onto the island in the dark with no booking for accommodation. I walked the length of ABC and there was no rooms available. I bumped into a French gentleman who said he thought there was an empty hut where he was staying. He got in contact with the owner who came down and luckily there was an empty hut! It was basic but clean. I met other people later on the island who had huge trouble with roaches in their huts. But I luckily never saw one. The hut had its own toilet and shower (hose). Mirror and fan and one plug socket. It was perfect. I was literally a 10 feet walk from the beach. With a restaurant and small shop right beside the huts. The restaurant served good very reasonably priced food. The huts provided a very good laundry service and good advice on the ferries to and from the island.
ABC is a very very small place for people who enjoy a quiet place with good diving and snorkeling. There is no partying at this beach, it's more the chilled place to get good BBQ'd fresh fish and chill under the stars with a Tiger beer or Mojito. There is a bar either end of the beach, as this is a duty free Island beer is good value compared to the rest of malaysia. But respect for the local muslim community is a must. Not loud boozing or parties. The locals are very welcoming. I was a beginner at diving and did my open water course on the island and really delighted i did it here. I relaxed into this place and never wanted to leave.
