*Fresh fish is available on request at extra cost (subject to availability). Please note, we do not usually serve fish as it can be difficult to obtain good quality fresh fish and we do not believe that the fish from the local market or supermarket has been sustainably caught. If you would like fish please let us know in advance and we will try to ask the local fisherman if they have any catch of the day. However, please do bare in mind that the locals usually only catch for their own consumption (the nearest fish market is in Kota Belud town), so there may not be any available

Jungle Night Walk
RM40 per person (1 hour)
Our jungle guide Jell will lead you into our surrounding forest by torchlight. Our best wildlife sightings are generally at night when animals are more active during the cover of darkness. This area is home to many different species of snakes, lizards, giant insects and birds. We regularly sight mammals such as; flying langurs, tarsier, silver leaf monkeys, slow loris, pangolins, civet cats, wild pigs, mouse deer and sea otters.
If you would like to adventure on your own we have a short nature trail you can follow during the daylight, or you can follow a steep dirt road through the jungle that winds uphill to a stunning viewpoint of the adjacent bay.
