Originally named Teluk Duyung, this pristine coastline is located at the Penang National Park. As its nickname suggests, the beach is primarily inhabited by long-tailed macaques, which you can see swinging playfully from tree to tree. If you're planning to set up a tent at this popular camping site, visitors are advised to keep their belongings safe and away from these cheeky group. Aside from its regular monkey-sightings, keep a look out for green turtles and white-bellied sea eagles when you're out for a swim or walk along its sandy beach.
