The Perhentian Islands are one of the designated Marine Parks of Malaysia that comprise Pulau Perhentian Besar, Pulau Perhentian Kecil. The beautiful islands boast tropical vegetation, powdery white beaches and sapphire blue crystalline waters.
A dream come true for sun seekers, Perhentian Besar Island and Perhentian Kecil Island offer amazing views of sparkling white sands and clear blue waters. The excellent visibility makes these islands the most favourite destination among divers and snorkellers.
The waters around Perhentian Islands offer some of the best dive site in Peninsular Malaysia; fusiliers fish, scorpionfish, rabbitfish and christmas tree worms are among the sights which will leave snorkellers spellbound.
Both Islands are filled with a good choice of budget-friendly accommodation.
A 10 minute boat ride is all it takes to get from one island to another. While Pulau Perhentian Kecil has a lively, upbeat atmosphere with plenty of chalets and beach bars, its neighbour has a quieter ambiance with comparatively larger resorts and restaurants.
