Be cautios because of nasty monkeys that tries to grab bags, food and anything they find attractive. One can swim in this lake, there are kayaks and catamarans. The view is magnificient. A lot of interesting informaton about the soil and this island you can find on the route to the lake. Recommended.

A 7 minutes hike up to the lake in the middle of the island. No worries on the hike as pathways and rails provided Lake water was cool, calm and fresh, very nice to swim Life jackets also available for purchase (optional) for RM5 Monkeys were also hanging around but don't worry they won't disturb you, just Monkeys being friendly

We bought the Tour for Island Hoping from our Hotel (Casa Fina) We went to : Pregnant maiden island, eagle island, and beras basah. I would say this one is the best.

You can rent kayak boat and do some kayaking. I found this place very very crowded. On this island there was only one public... More

It is in midst of natural beauty of rocks , forest and with a very good infrastructure even though very deep about 20 meters depth but floating platforms were constructed for tourist and small depth swimming pools for children in the floating platform. Must visit for nature lovers
