Monkey Beach, Teluk Bahang

1.0
#3 of 7 in Wildlife in Penang
Hike or sail to the isolated Monkey Beach to take advantage of its pristine white sands. The beach is named after the crab-eating macaque monkeys that share this area with green turtles, monitor lizards, and flying squirrels. Swim in the calm waters of the bay, relax on the soft sand, and have a picnic under the palm trees. Attracting few visitors, the remote bay is rarely crowded and doesn't feature food stalls and restaurants. Bring your own food and lots of drinking water, especially if you're planning to hike to and from the beach.
