“Mixed feelings”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

We had looked forward to coming here for long time but the reality of dozens of tourist boats with hundreds of tour groups arriving at this little piece of paradise is a bit disappointing. The lake itself is very picturesque. On the day we were there - there was a large population of Macques present these are not being managed with the large amount of tourists visiting this island. My husband was attacked by a family group when just walking past losing his towel and shoes, Thankfully not seriously hurt. We then witnessed another woman get her drink snatched and one her camera. These events were reported by our tour operator to appropriate authorities.

“Good trip”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

Negotiated with the boat operators south of Cenang, to do a cash deal for a four hour trip to view the rock formation that is the Pregnant Lady. The RM320 also included a visit to the lake, eagle feeding/watching, and then two hours of line fishing. Getting to the lake does involve a walk up and down some quite steep steps which is advertised as being a 6 minute duration but actually took longer. Once there, the lake is warm & wonderful and the swimming facilities & views are great. But you would have to negotiate with your boat driver to stay longer if you really wanted to enjoy it to the full. Fishing on open water as the sun set was wonderful ... no problem that we didn't really catch anything

“Must visit”
Reviewed 27 February 2014 via mobile

Once you reach the island, do being a swimming suit or extra clothes for a swim in the lake.

You will have to climb up before reaching the lake.

Worth the climb.

“Freshwater in between sea water”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

Its a nice , cold and fresh water lake, surrounded by mountain and then salt water, it really amazed me. There were nice platforms for sitting and enjoying the beauty and we swim also. But take care if you are going for swimming, lake is really deep.
