I like this place a lot but during island hopping only 1hour is allowed to spend time here. It is best place to capture photos and you feel very close to the nature. Beach view is so enjoyable with white sand beach and clear water. Now they have other beach activities as well for tourist. Monkeys are so mischievous and they are point of attraction for the tourists.
Be careful not to leave food in your bag when you are swimming. Saw one of the monkeys get into a bag, take out the food container, remove the lid,and run off with all the biscuits.
It was a nice sandy beach where you can swim or snorkel if you wish but not many fishes can be seen. A perfect place to have a picnic with family and relax in a hot day. Maybe next time we'll have that perfect moment.
Although I have always said that I am a good life, I am very hungry when I am hungry... But how fierce and hungry are not as good as Langkawis monkeys~
Describe the monkeys of Langkawi, I only think of 2 words. : Cute thief...
Whether there are many monkeys on the road or on the island, as long as you have food in your hand, as long as you have food in the bag, as long as you pass the food with them, hey, then you Be careful to be stared at you by Qitian Dasheng!
If you see a rotten coconut on the wet rice island, don't just drop it in the trash can. In fact, it is for the tourists to encounter the monkeys and grab the coconuts to scare the monkeys!
