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 Pulau Perhentian Besar vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
