Kukup, near the south-western tip of the peninsula, 20km from Pontian, is a well-known fishing village with most of its houses built on stilts. It is famous for its fish farms and several popular seafood restaurants which serve famous local delicacies like crab, fish and prawn.
Boardwalk is built deep into the mangrove of the island. Visitors may take a 45 minutes walk into the mangrove using the boardwalk. Explanation signboards are erected by the side of the boardwalk showing the species of flora and fauna on the spot. It serves the purpose of education for the children and adults.
At the end of the boardwalk is a 6 level watchtower. It brings visitors above the tree canopy and affords visitors a 360 degree view of the Kukup Island. It is a stunning horizon of green sea with gentle bliss blowing on the face.
Water birds including migratory species from Russia and China congregate at the Southern part of Kukup Island i.e. the mudflat area. It is definitely a spot that cannot be missed by an ardent birdwatcher.
