Further down the road, is the increasingly popular Teluk Nipah.
Accommodation here caters much to the middle to lower-ranged budgets
and can be a little dissapointing to those who have something of
a romantic notion of island getaway in mind. Chalets, restaurants
and motels line the streets and even the small alleyways and during
the peak seasons, it's jam-packed with tourists. The main road lies
between the beach and the motels and chalets so don't expect to
get any rooms on the beach itself.
Just off the main street, towards the end of alleyways sits the
borderline of the forest reserve. In the evenings, if you're lucky,
you can witness a flock of hornbills flying in for handouts left
out by local operators.
Always shy but these hornbills seem to think that there may be
some truth in safety in numbers. From the beach, you can also take a short boat ride to the nearby
islands of Pulau Giam and Pulau Mentaggor and if you're really for
some exercise, you can rent kayaks for a paddle out to these islands.
