Nipah is a remote bay along Pulau Tioman’s west coast, located 2.5km south of Genting or 6km north of Mukut. Named after a local palm tree, it’s a haven for visitors seeking an isolated getaway in undisturbed, natural surroundings. The beach is a pristine half-km stretch of golden sands fringed by lush rainforest, with a calm lagoon lined with mangroves hidden behind the shore.

The warm, clear sea here is completely unspoilt, with colourful fish grazing light coral beds underneath the water. Speedboats can be chartered for a trip here from any place around the island, or booked through a stay at one of the village’s rustic chalet resorts.
