Monkey Beach - Review
Accessible by boat and on foot, Monkey Beach has grown popular amongst tourists. This crescent shoreline is overlooked by majestic mountains, while the fresh waters offer a brilliant site. Ample shade to cool down during the summers, you can have a great time here exploring the diverse flora and fauna. While monkeys are resident here, you may also get to spot monitor lizards and different types of insects. The boat provides a leisure ride to and from this coastline, but the best way to experience the vibe of this natural retreat is to hike up the mountain. The terrain is not difficult, and the view from the top is mesmerizing to say the least. The monkeys are friendly as long as we respect them and their space. Have a unique experience here!

Monkey Beach, Tanjung Bungah Reviews
Honeymoon destination! We went here on our honeymoon & had a half day tour complete with beach barbecue (a modest one). There's a path you can trek on for a bit while you wait for the food to be ready. But the star attraction is the pair of local monkeys that you can feed. They're friendly but cheeky so keep all your small belongings under tight watch as they're fast critters who are smart & nimble enough to open back-packs! Luckily mine was the anti-theft kind so it was nice to watch the little guy fiddle with the zipper in befuddlement lol! Ladies take your ear rings off & keep them in your bag - unless they're hard to come undone as these monkeys will have a crack at anything shiny! They're kept on a leash so don't fret if they get a hold of something ... plus their caretaker is always close at hand.
We caught a boat from our hotel in Batu Ferringhi, stopped to fish and feed the eagles on the way then got off at monkey beach and had a BBQ lunch and explore. Cost us 450 RM for 4 people but you could probably get it for cheaper booking without the hotel concierge. Excellent way to spend a few hours. Would recommend going early because we left it a bit late and it was a bit hot and we didn't catch any fish 😂
A nice place to set up a tent on the beach and enjoy the nature. Would have given 5 stars if it wasn't for the rubbish on the edge of the beach side. Only leave your footprints behind guys...!
As is the name, there's a lot of monkey there. We've ordered a set of BBQ contains chickens, sausages, breads, fruits, satay and a fish but be careful as you may have to a few monkeys while you're eating. Hahaha. There's also coconut water but a bit expensive if you ask me. Here, you can go for a dip, jet skiing, and also hike up to the lighthouse.
The water is not show clear. Be careful the monkeys can catch your stuffs to get food. Good for trekking .
