  • We took a walk on wooden walkways through the mangrove forest (about 800 meters) ending at a hardstand and a walk of another 650 meters on tarred road back to the car park. It was certainly a nice, relaxing walk on a cool day. We walked past several chalets by the side of the river near the hardstand but weren’t sure whether they were still in operation. The mangrove trees were a spectacular sight with straight trunks reaching for the sky and wide spread-out roots for stability. At end of the wooden walkway at the hardstand, we took some photos of the river at the rickety timber jetty. Beside it was a building that looked like a restaurant.
  • Must go. Very nice.
  • Superb pristine mangrove
  • Eco place must visit for children
