Unique Qualities: had a fantastic time! great view.. really good vibes. the beach is most definitely better than we expected as we were quite dissappointed by what we saw when we got off at Tekek. thank goodness for this side of the island, where we had a lot of sand, sea and beautiful sights to ourselves and the right amount of socialising when we wanted it. when we were not being lazy, the hike through the rain forest rewarded us with this amazing waterfalls. the accommodation isn't 5 star but the owner/host told us to come back next year when they spruce up the place a bit. anyway, our two-cents: it's worth experiencing the place even as it was when we were there. at night, the boys who work there put up fire shows.. even taught some of the other guests and we have some great pictures of that! food is basic but good and there are some fun do-it-yourself-if-u-want BBQs. for the vibes and views this place has to offer, it is definitely a must!
Address: Juara Village, Tioman Island
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: we took a ferry from mersing to Tekek. then a 4WD ride across the rain forest to Juara. facing the ocean, manana is at the far right of the Juara jetty. our car didn't take us all the way, but we walked walked walked.. and it was well worth the travel!
Price: less than US$20
