Air Batang

Tioman Island

Air Batang, or ABC Village as it's popularly known, is a rural village along the west coast of Pulau Tioman, at immediate north of Tekek. Located south of Panuba Bay and 3km before Salang via jungle trail, the village is a traditional backpacker hideout, with a high concentration of budget hotels offering basic accommodation, though quite a few resorts have upgraded their chalets in recent years.

The beach is a linear 1.5km stretch of sand, with emerald clear waters and lush landscapes. At low tide, the seabed reveals a pretty carpet of boulders, pebbles and rocks of various sizes. A few dive centres operate within the vicinity while local and Western food is easy to be found. A quick boardwalk connects the west end of Air Batang to the Marine Park directly.
