About Perhentian Island

Located in the state of Terengganu, Malaysia, the Perhentian Islands are bordered by white sands and peaceful turquoise waters. Seize the opportunity to scuba dive, snorkel or kayak and get even closer to marine life at a turtle sanctuary where the staff are dedicated to preservation and understanding of the sea turtle population. From treks in the wilderness to festivals on the beaches, there's plenty here to entice you away from the mainstay of Malaysian destinations.

You can stay at a Perhentian Island hostel that's a camping ground on its own private beach, tucked in a jungle landscape. Fill up (and save some money) at a hostel that includes a free breakfast too. Some Perhentian Island hostels provide linen at check in, so you can keep room in your backpack for souvenirs and leave your sleeping bag at home. When it comes to staying entertained, how about a place with a bar and barbecue?

The Perhentian Islands are actually made up of two islands. Pulau Perhentian Kecil is the smaller destination. Popular with backpackers, it has lots of places to eat and drink, not to mention nightlife ranging from cinema events to dance parties. Pulau Perhentian Besar is the bigger island, so go there for a more luxurious visit. This island is home to upmarket restaurants, plus, because it's a little larger, it's easy to wander the coast and discover a secluded area.

Spot lizards and monkeys as you make your way across the island on a jungle trek or just take it easy on Long Beach, which is strewn with hammocks. Head here to admire the sunset too. If you want to snorkel, Adam & Eve Beach is quieter. There's the chance to see local life in Kecil, a fishing village where you can watch workers bring in their catch during the day. At night, there are two or three bars the locals visit, including one with a nightly fire show.

To reach the Perhentian Islands you have to first fly into Kuala Terengganu's Sultan Mahmud Airport. From there, you can take a bus to the Kuala Besut jetty, about 1.5 hours away. Once you're at the jetty, hop on the ferry over to the islands and you'll be there within 45 minutes. There are no roads on the islands so the only way to get around is on foot or by water taxi.
