ABC Beach, Tioman

at first i thought, what only rocks? this beach sucks. then it just grew on me and i stayed there for 9 days. a really nice vibe there.
stayed in south pacific chalets for mr27/night.
most small basic bungalows are around the mr30-40 range. then, it jumps to mr100-150 for a/c rooms.
the sand is at either end of the beach and the one at the south end has a bar right on it. they make a decent pizza there too.
happy hour from 5-7. both ends have a bar with happy hour. 3 beers for mr10.
you can walk from end to end in about 20 leisurely minutes, so it doesnt really matter where you stay. the south end has a longer stretch of sandy beach than the north by bamboo resort. (its always booked months in advance)
not so nice snorkeling there. lack of coral.
duty free is about 100 yards from the airport on the next beach to the south. good prices!
cats. lots of cats.
monitor lizards, monkeys and pythons. didnt see one dog.
all in all, a nice place to kick back and meet people.
later
