We only managed to take photos from the boat. As current were strong, we did not get any nice photos. Weather is clear and hot though.

This beach is absolutely fabulous and the name is owed to monkeys which about on the beach, and can go into the water (beware "pick pocketing" as they are so curious). Moreover, the jungle above the beach provides incredible backdrop.

Cute and rude monkeys that you can see (and feel) from up close.. you can do a short hike. Some bite, beware. Feeding is prohibited

A nice little hideaway from the main beach area. My friends and I rented kayaks and paddled there to snorkel. It took us about 20-30 minutes to paddle there. Unfortunately, the monkeys weren’t out yet, but the snorkeling was great. The fish aren’t shy and...More
