  • Just in the period where we were in Paku (August 2018), the road to Monkey Beach was closed. That's why we decided on Kerachut Beach. Initially the road is easy and enjoyable, then it gets a little harder, but rather most, healthy people are able to pass it. Along the way there are places where you can relax, in addition, the views reward the trouble:) Beach pretty, unfortunately has unpleasant, sharp sand. Because of the culture there, I have not decided to pardon the beach in swimsuit. ATTENTION-back you can return the boat, however, it will be best to book a place when you buy seats. We did not manage to get on any boat, because the people who bought the seats took precedence, and the Samumu boat did not pay to sail-I do not remember exactly, but for two people were about 100 zł. The staff was very friendly and helpful:)

  • One of the nice beach in penang.. 2 way to go there either hike or boat.. strongly recommend.. this time feel the beach is more clean then last time.. please work together make the place clean don't throw rubbish there after eat or drink or camping.
  • Amazing place to reach after a ~90min hike. The path here is not the easiest as stairs etc. aren't really maintained, so make sure you're at least of average fitness. There isn't really anything on the beach besides a few boats, so probably not worth coming here by boat. Especially since you're not allowed to swim. A good option seems to be to walk here, then take a boat to monkey beach, and from there either walk the path back to the entrance (path is walkable despite officially being closed, according to people working on monkey beach)
