Monkey Bay is a beautiful beach tucked behind Salang Village at the west coast of Pulau Tioman, accessible by speedboat or jungle trail. This sweeping bay has a beautiful beach with a calm pool of sea water and lush rainforest surroundings. It’s one of the most popular snorkeling stops on round-island tours by speedboat from any village, but visitors can also hike there in an hour from Salang.
Conversely, the trail connects to Air Batang (ABC Village). Starting from there, it is an undulating two-hour trail through Panuba Bay and Monkey Beach before it hits the bay. As the trail is sometimes obscure, always follow the path that winds closest to the electric poles.
