Located in the South China, off Malaysia's northeast coast, just south

of the Thai border, lies island jewels offering a virtual paradise for snorkelling and diving in crystal-clear water or just for lazing on one

of the white sandy beaches.

The Perhentian group of islands here refers to the Islands of

Pulau Perhentian Besar, Pulau Perhentian Kecil, Pulau Redang,

Pulau Bidong, Pulau Kapas, Pulau Gemia, Pulau Lang Tengah

and Pulau Tenggol.


Perhentians are one of those places people come to visit for days

but end up staying for months.

The islands are surrounded by beautiful palm-fringed sandy beaches and crystal-clear turquoise-blue sea. All manner of aquatic life is visible both near and far from the beach such

as turtles, sharks, coral and thousands

of tropical fish.

There are no roads and not many paths,

so the islands are mainly peaceful and

untouched - so far.

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.

Tourism is relatively new to these islands, in fact, the past five years have seen rapid increases in tourism numbers and there are now many new rooms and services to accommodate guests. Perhentian is fast developing, possibly too fast.
