Perhentian Island is one of Malaysia’s beautiful islands located at the east coast of Malaysia. The island provides a gorgeous place to rest and relax, a wonderful holiday destination with white sandy beach, jungle interior and lovely interesting diving spots while disconnecting from the stress and routine of everyday life.
Pulau Perhentian consist of two islands named Perhentian Besar and Perhentian Kecil. The word Perhentian means “stopping point” in Malay, as the island’s traditional role as waypoint for traders between Bangkok and Malaysia.
For Perhentian Kecil, the island remains relatively untouched. Apart from the footpaths that cut through the jungle, there are no roads on the islands. However, you may encounter some shy wildlife during the footpath walk, such as monitor lizards, fruit bats, squirrels or even some mouse deer.
For divers, there are plenty of dive sites around both islands. The best month for diving is between March to Sept and dive equipment is readily available for rent at almost all dive centers.
