  • The forest itself is great and there are some lovely hikes to be had. Unfortunately most of the man made items are either broken or seriously run down. The walkway to Monkey Beach collapsed years...

  • Very beautiful place. You can hike for hours. From the entrance to the farthest beach, it's a 1h30 hike (one way). They have a boating service ehere you can hire a whole boat to go to any of the 4 beaches. You can rent the boat-way or two-way. Example for one way is you hike for some time and go back to the entrance by boat. Or you can ride the boat to one of the beaches and hike back from there. The hike is seriously beautiful. You walk by the seaside and then get into the jungle to get to the other side of the park to discover beautiful beaches. When you walk in the jungle, please be careful not to step on any ant colonies. And please don't litter.
  • The hike is around 3+KM took about 1 hour + for average hikers , the trail is not that steep but still steep and not very challenging, very good hiking trail for those who are looking for a relaxing hike. The beach also very beautiful and clean and they have a Sea turtle sanctuary you can go and visit for free. Dont be like me I forgot to book a boat earlier at the entrance or else you will need to hike back again , luckily there are these good women who kindly let us join their boat to go to monkey beach and go back to entrance. In monkey beach you can drink and eat there.
