Pulau Sapi (Cow Island) has some of the nicest beaches in the Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park and pristine diving and snorkelling conditions. The water is very clear and inhabited by colourful fish who peck in a surprising way at the feet and legs of unsuspecting visitors – they're just eating shreds of your dead skin... The island is also home to monkeys, not cows, and they're more than happy to steal your lunch if you give them a chance - out of your hands if need be. This is one of the quieter of the national park's five. People generally visit for the day and only a few people stay overnight – the accommodation is limited and the facilities pretty basic. But they do a tasty barbecue.
