Just off the coast of West Malaysia, Perhentian Islands offer access to sandy beaches, azure seas, and dense green jungles providing a home for many wild animals. Ideal for snorkelers, most of the islands' beaches feature shallow waters, frequented by cuttlefish, parrotfish, and rays. Scuba divers can take advantage of various reefs and wrecks, swarming with marine life. If you can bear to drag yourself away from your perfect spot on the sand, the islands' interiors provide jungle trekking, with monitor lizards, giant spiders, and the occasional monkey. Restaurants, bars, and resorts on the two main islands provide dining and entertainment. Take the guesswork out of planning a Perhentian Islands vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Beautiful place, I hope it will last. I don't think so. Locals take and sell the eggs of turtles 5 ringint egg, last week they took 200 eggs. Unacceptable, for Islands to be called preserver, the front is beautiful but not the rear, pictures of the garbage behind the hotels, and the paradise in front. I live in Malaysia, it's the plys beautiful place I've seen. Let's protect him.
One of the best marine conservation parks in the world. Excellent spot for snorkeling and scuba diving. You can find monitor lizards in this island forests.
