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.
