Teluk Duyung literally being called Mermaid Bay, it is an en route beach to Muka Headís cape and one of the small isolated beach northwest from Penang Island. Teluk Duyung is came from Malay word, Teluk means 'Bay' and Duyung is derived from the legendary word of 'Mermaid'.

Teluk Duyung also known as Monkey Beach to the local beside Teluk Ketapang. It has been well known as Monkey Beach since old days until today where monkeys roam the beach scavenging and ransacking campers. There might be a little bit confusion why there are so many beaches being called as Monkey Beach. In fact, Monkey Beach is just simple generic term to describe since many people have no idea the exact name of the location. Take for example, anyone can call any beaches on the island as coconut beach or what so ever. In order not to confuse yourself, let's learn the correct name of the location.

In term of the accessibility to the beach, ones may hire a boat at the registration area or alternatively where most people did is by foot. It is only 30 to 45 minutes walk from the National Park entrance, however, it is still depending on individual hiking skill and stamina.
