Tough walk up a steep hill so if the tuk tuk driver offers to drive you up for an extra 100 baht take him up on it! Once up there are loads of monkeys around, crab eating macaques that kept their distance though signs warn...More
This hill,otherwise know as monkey mountain,was a 3 k walk the beach from Hyatt regent the hill is a Buddhist temple on one side but also a space that you can climb to the top over 152 steeps stair.

There is a small temple up the stairs on the top of the hill besides the Buddha figure. It took lot of time to reach the top but the view is spectacular from there and worth it once you reach there. There are lot of...More
We went there on our own with two kids aged 8 and 3 and it is not that interesting. The view might be the most exciting thing there.
There is a temple and aggressive monkeys, but there is so many better places to experience animals...More
Definitely not one of the best beaches in Thailand. Only reason why I was there is because my hotel was a stones throw away. Nice to go and take some photos but that’s about it. If you are a beach lover, you’d be sorely disappointed.
We took some time to visit this beach, it was pleasant enough, however there were monkeys everywhere. Although very cute need to be very careful as they will take any from you. Saw my first swimming monkey!
No entrance fee and definitely worth the trip. Take heed of other advice here by all means, but don't let it put you off going - go to the top temple, great views. Also go down to the Chinese temple, it is very... More
No entrance fee and definitely worth the trip. Take heed of other advice here by all means, but don't let it put you off going - go to the top temple, great views. Also go down to the Chinese temple, it is very peaceful.
Buy food for the monkeys, it is about 50 baht a bucket, but leave handbags etc. in the car.

OK, I am not sure what you mean by "Monkey Island", some people call it Monkey Mountain, but if you go up the steep, steep winding road all the way to the top to where the steps to the Temple on the very top of the mountain is located, there is a maybe 30 car/pick-up truck parking lot surrounded by small food and gift shops. There is additional parking up a dirt road at the back of the parking lot that goes to a plateau where you can stand on the cliffs looking out over the water. There is also a shrine to a famous monk on this plateau and when I was there, a number of discarded Buddha statures - probably waiting until they are installed in a future shrine. So yes, there is parking.
