Explore ABC Beach on Pulau Tioman

Rate this Adventure ABC Beach Port

ABC Beach is the perfect destination for backpackers with a relaxed atmosphere, stunning emerald waters, and chalets all along the stretch of beach. There are also great coves for snorkeling and diving.

If you're traveling along the East coast of Malaysia this is a destination you don't want to miss. Pulau Tioman is an island off the coast and has several areas for travelers to stay on it. However, Kampung Air Batang (ABC Beach) is probably the best destination for backpackers. It is comprised of a long stretch of beach that has restaurants, chalets, and plenty of options to take snorkeling or scuba diving tours. The accommodation in the chalets are nothing fancy, but you have running water for showers and clean sheets. If you're looking to just relax and grab a drink then head to the Southern most part of the beach to Nazri's. Here you'll find a beach bar, with lawn chairs and tables, cheap beer, and a sunset that can't be beat. They even sell banana splits... I'm not kidding!

In order to reach ABC Beach you will need to travel to Mersing, a port town on the East coast. The best way to reach Mersing is either by bus or taxi. Taxi's can be expensive, but we shared ours with another group of backpackers and the total price was relatively cheap. Once you reach Mersing you'll have to head to the ferry port to buy your ticket out to the island. This is a truly unforgettable place that can't be missed!
