Monkey Bay

Tioman Island

Monkey Bay is a beautiful beach tucked behind Salang Village at the west coast of Pulau Tioman, accessible by speedboat or jungle trails. This sweeping bay has a beautiful beach with a calm pool of sea water and lush rainforest surroundings. It's one of the most popular snorkeling stops on round-island tours by speedboat from any village, but visitors can also hike there from Salang, using a steep one-hour trail across the cape. From Air Batang (ABC Village), an undulating two-hour trail begins north and passes through Panuba and then its neighbour, Monkey Beach, before it hits the bay. As the trail is sometimes obscure, always follow the path that winds closest to the electric poles.
