Monkey beach (Pulau Dayang)

Monkey beach (Pulau Dayang)

Characteristics

Description

Monkey beach or Teluk Duyung is Only 5nm from Kuah Town, so makes a handy day spot  to anchor before moving to either Singa Besar or the "Fjords" for a  more comfortable night anchorage by 3/4 m. It is protected by the Muka Head Cape. It is a private land, at one time cultivated with coconuts and durians.

Has barbecues and wood on site.

Good for lunch, but the 'mozzies' arrive at night. Many monkeys wait  for scraps. Take care, there are some mean greedy ones that might bite.

About 50mtr in from the beach is a nice cave with stalagmites & stalactites that goes in for 100mtrs.Take a flashlight & wear sneakers.

See waterfall after easy climb from NE corner. It flows May-Dec when  fresh water can be collected from a stream at southern end of beach.

This anchorage is fairly exposed and on a lee shore, so you  might want to check weather before leaving your boat unattended.
The holding ground here is good in firm mud and clay.
DANGERS: The only danger is an unmarked rock lying just beneath  the surface, situated at end of Bass Harbour, SE of Pulau Selang. Don't cut corner if heading SW down channel.
