The park's forests consist of beach, kerangas and mixed dipterocarp forest, which provide a habitat to various species of plants, trees and wildlife. It is possible to explore the rainforest by walking along the trail which runs parallel to the coast for about 9km. There are several species of monkeys including gibbons, banded langurs and long-tailed macaque. The park records the presence of 185 species of birds, which include hornbills and migratory water birds. Duirng my visit I ran into a small saltwater crocodile, approx. 1.5m long, which ran away as soon as it spotted me.
