Yong Gasem Bay (Phi Phi Monkey Beach)
Attractions, Koh Phi Phi
Yong Gasem Bay is popularly also known as Monkey Beach, because a herd of Macaque monkeys comes regularly out of the surrounding cliffs to visit the beach.
The monkeys are not frightened by tourists and let themselves readily be fed with fruit.
But to note: these animals are not tame; do not taunt them with offerings or get too close to them. Macaques can be aggressive, they have strong teeth and their bite can be serious.
