Ideal for: Singles, couples and families of all diving and snorkelling abilities
The Perhentian Islands lie off the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia, just south of the Thai border. There are two islands: the smaller one, Perhentian Kecil, is perfect for backpackers with cheaper accommodation, while the resorts on the larger island Perhentian Besar, are great for families and couples.
Fringing reefs, wrecks and pinnacles surround both tropical islands, with good coral life and a diverse selection of marine life, including regular sightings of Black Tip Reef Sharks, Hawksbill Turtles and the occasional Green Turtles, Butterflyfish, Angelfish, Spiny Devilfish, Barracuda, Scorpionfish and much more.
Other than diving, there is also great snorkelling for those who want to stay above the waves, sea kayaking, a selection of white sand beaches, and plenty of nature concealed in the jungles with large monitor lizards, colugos (flying lemurs) and the odd snake to find.
