  • Last Saturday I trekked to Golden Beach covering 10 km one way and it took 3 hours and 40 minutes including 2 stops at Turtle Beach 1 & 2 along the way. The entrance fee is RM10 and the female staff at the reception was very friendly and informative. The trail was easy to navigate because of the red marks along the trail except for some spots where few trees collapsed blocking the trail. I wore sandal and short pant and regretted it. I only met other trekkers near to Golden Beach. There were around 10 trekkers who reached the furthest beach I guess. I brought 2 liter of water and it was barely enough. You need to bring more. There is a hut halfway to rest and near to the beach there is a small cabin. I think you can stay there overnight. The trail expands along the coast from the entrance area to Golden Beach. So, you can always hear the sound of water splashing from the beach. There are bridges built to cross few rivers and streams. Some of them were in poor condition so please be careful while using them. The park is inhabited by many species of wildlife like boars and saltwater crocs. But I didn't see em that day. Lucky me I guess. The destination granted me with a quiet and beautiful beach. There were no ships in the sea unlike in Bintulu city where the sea is infested with cargo ships. The total time was 7 hours to return to the HQ. It was a beautiful day, no rain. reminder: no swimming and other water activities are allowed in the national park.
  • Nice choice for a decent jingle hike. Chance to meet various animals like crocodile or beared pig.
  • Nice park, but animals hard to see (turtles, dolphins, crocodile)
  • been here on july 2017 with my friends, jungle tracking 20km plus to golfen beach. worth physical experience.
  • Very nature sir! U should try em now
