Perhentian Island (Pulau Perhentian)
to Perhentian | Location
Map | Introduction
The two Perhentian Islands are rated as some of the most beautiful
islands in the world…a virtual paradise for snorkeling and
diving in crystal-clear water or just for lazing on one of the white
sandy beaches waiting for the coconuts to drop.
Perhentian Islands is located in the South China Sea 25 km from
the coast of Kuala Besut. It consists of two islands, Pulau Perhentian
Besar and Pulau Perhentian Kecil. Both islands are surrounded by
beautiful palm-fringed sandy beaches andcrystal-clear turquoise-blue
sea. A trip to this lush and exotic tropical island is a must for
all nature lovers and those who enjoy scuba diving, snorkeling,
deep sea fishing, swimming, wind surfing, sailing, boating and canoeing.
All manner of aquatic life is visible both near and far from the
beach such as turtles, sharks, coral and thousands of tropical fish.
The interior is covered by jungle with a wide variety of species.
You can watch monitor lizards, monkeys, geckos, flying squirrels,
butterflies and many other types - sometimes right in front of your
chalet. There are no roads and not many paths, so the islands are
mainly peaceful and untouched - so far.
