Awesome hike here. Moderately difficult, feels like you are either going up or down with very little “flat” hiking. That said, it’s really a fun hike with great trail conditions. The trail is open and the beach is really beautiful. If you go about 300m up the beach there is an cool little turtle sanctuary to check out.

Fairly easy hike if weather is dry. Nice and quiet environment. Less crowded on weekdays. The route is a combination of concrete steps and packed earth or mud (dry or wet weather). The concrete is in many places washed out by previous rainfall. At the end of the trail, at Turtle Beach, you can visit the turtle hatchery for free. Opt to continue walking to Teluk Kampi or cross the beach and loop back towards the same trail. Or you can take a speedboat at the pier to Monkey Beach / USM research station / park entrance (fee 40-50 MYR pp, to be requested/negotiated before starting, no cell phone coverage at Kerachut Beach).

This was an ok trail but incredibly busy (we went on a Saturday), probably also not helped by the monkey beach trail being closed. The walk itself is clear and easy to follow with quite a few uphill sections. We would have enjoyed this more had it been less busy. The beach at the end was lovely and we chose to take a boat back from here rather than walk back through the park.

The trail is challenging in particular going further to Teluk Campi Beach. It is another steep climb and even steeper descent to the beach. We opted taking a boat back (can be arranged when getting to the beach). Expect to pay around 120RM one way from Teluk Campi

Sometimes steep hike through dry forest. We much preferred Botanic Garden. Can take boat back, $40USD, should book at entry. Beach is pleasant, turtle sanctuary worth a look

It was a great hike and and can choose to take a boat back to the starting point instead of hike back as there will be some uphill in the beginning but after that it will be good.
