Pulau Perhentian, meaning ‘stopover island’, is not to be missed. It lies approximately 21 Kilometres off the coast of Terengganu. The two main islands are Pulau Perhentian Besar and Pulau Perhentian Kecil. Covered by unspoilt jungle, windswept palms, powdery white beaches and surrounded by sapphire blue waters, Pulau Perhentian is a sanctuary for fishermen, migratory birds and of course, discerning holiday makers. Located just off the edge of the Pulau Redang Marine Park, Perhentian’s coral-fringed waters have excellent underwater seascapes for snorkelling and scuba diving.

Of the two islands, Pulau Perhentian Kecil is more geared towards backpackers. Here, you’ll find a wide range of budget options for both food and accommodation.

Pulau Perhentian Besar, on the other hand, is more developed and therefore offers better facilities. Nevertheless, there are chalets, dormitories and campsites on both islands.

Must do:

– Explore the island’s underwater beauty at the many dive sites scattered around the island.
– Indulge in a range of watersports, such as windsurfing, sailing and angling.
– Go island-hopping.
– Try night-time diving.
– Go jungle-trekking.
