There are also plenty of food stalls that can be found on the beach of Nipah Bay. You can also visit the neighboring beaches like Coral Bay, which is often labelled as the best beach in here. Coral Bay is just north of Teluk Nipah. It boasts clear, emerald-green water due to the presence of limestone. It’s definitely an ideal place to watch the sunset. Teluk Belanga is another nice destination. It has a wide beach spanning this whole bay. It is perfect for swimming, but gets very crowded during holidays. The beach here has white sand but the beach strip is quite narrow. It is one of the most popular beaches on the island.
