Pulau Perhentian...

The two Perhentian Islands are rated as some of the most beautiful islands in the world... a virtual paradise for snorkelling and diving in crystal-clear water or just for lazing on one of the white sandy beaches waiting for the coconuts to drop...

Pulau Perhentian is located in the South China Sea 25 km from the coast of Kuala Besut. It consists of two islands, Pulau Perhentian Besar and Pulau Perhentian Kecil. Both islands are surrounded by beautiful palm-fringed sandy beaches andcrystal-clear turquoise-blue sea.

All manner of aquatic life is visible both near and far from the beach such as turtles, sharks, coral and thousands of tropical fish. The interior is covered by jungle with a wide variety of species. You can watch monitor lizards, monkeys, geckos, flying squirrels, butterflies and many other types - sometimes right in front of your chalet. There are no roads and not many paths, so the islands are mainly peaceful and untouched - so far.

In fact, Tom from tomsjalanjalan will be coordinating a trip to Pulau Perhentian in June. Have already confirmed to go for this trip. Will also be going for the PADI Open Water Course (Scuba Diving First Level). Come join us. It'll be great fun!

Tom's the man! Going on a trip with Tom will never be boring. He's always got some nice stories to tell and you can learn so much from him. Anyways, here's the message from Tom:
