A visit to the Perhentian Islands is taking a step into a rare, exotic paradise, and the perfect place to reconnect with nature—and your own self.
Your Perhentian Islands tour begins on the northern coast of Peninsular Malaysia, where the two islands are located. These islands are ringed in pristine white beaches, and there are no roads to get from one place to another; should you wish to visit different parts of the islands, you can take pathways through jungles teeming with wildlife, or hire water taxis to shuttle you from one village to the next.
The Perhentian Islands are part of the Perhentian Marine Park, which is home to some of the best diving in the world. Because the park is a nationally protected area, activities like water skiing, jet skiing, and fishing are prohibited in the immediate area. These quiet, clear waters are the perfect place for you to snorkel your way through gorgeous coral reefs and photograph some of the local sea life.
Once you’re out of the water, your Perhentian Islands sightseeing will reveal a simple, relaxing lifestyle waiting for you. A number of accommodations are located right on the beach, so you can walk from the water into your rental. Stretch out on the sand with family and friends, or go for a hike in the jungle. Just remember to get back to the shoreline in time to watch the sun go down: it’s one of the most striking scenes you’ll ever see.
