We were straight away warned about some of the monkeys on the island, and how they like to steal and terrorize the people visiting the island. And true to there word, that is what they do. Jodie and I were eating breakfast for example in the morning and a monkey legged it and jumped up on to our table, grabbing a muffin and a sausage and legging it off again. When we first arrived we cracked straight on with a 5 hour trek, taking us up and around cliff tops looking the beaches and sea. It was so, so hot. Really unbearable and by the end we were both soaked through and dying of dehydration. We got back to our hotel, showered off and watched Man City play Spurs
Following day we were woken to the sound of monkeys wandering around on the roof of our room. We had breakfast and headed on another 3 hour trek to a beach. The beach was completely secluded and we were the only 2 there at the beginning. We spent about 3 hours relaxing, and keeping an eye on our stuff from them gypo monkeys. We went into the water one at a time because they really would go for your stuff given half a chance. I even made us a little shelter. Felt like Cast Away! The water came in so quick over such a short space of time that after a couple of times moving away from it, further inland we began the trek back, resulting in being completely soaked in sweat.
We then got a boat and bus back to Kuching.
