So the next day we woke up at 6, get ready by 7 and check out. We went straight to the agent's office to get our boat ticket. Parking fee for 3 days was RM20. And fortunately there was a restaurant next to the office so we just had our breakfast there. From there the agent took us to the jetty by 5 mins walking. Very near. At the jetty we had to buy the marine parks fee. and by 8.30 we already we were already in the boat. The journey was about 30 mins boat ride. It was a bumpy ride especially for those who sit in front. When we arrived, we were super lucky because our room was empty therefore we get to check in early around 9.30. Check in time was supposed to be 3pm. Can u believe it lol.
After check in we didn't waste anytime and decided to go to Long Beach which was on the other side of the island. We had to fricking HIKE there. It was about 15 mins hike. I was out of breath lols. But it was totally worth it. The view was amazing. I have read a lot in reviews and blogs that Long beach has the best view and amazing sand. It was right. Our hotel was in Coral Bay and as the name suggests, it has a lot of dead corals in there. It wasn't ideal for swimming. Sharila has its own private beach that was better that coral bay but still a lot of dead corals. Long beach is the sandy sexy beach. Sadly, it was too hot to do anything. So like the tourists we were, we decided to have a drink and enjoy the scorching hot sun lol. We didnt stay too long and hike back to our hotel where we rest for our 1st snorkeling trip.
