About Pulau Perhentian Besar (Perhentian Islands)
The larger of Malaysia’s two picturesque Perhentian islands, famous for its diving, snorkelling and swimming, is a true tropical island experience. Perhentian translates as ‘stopping point’, which is exactly what this island used to be, a stopping point for traders travelling between Bangkok and Malaysia. Today Pulau Perhentian Besar is a popular destination for Thai, Malay and foreign tourists who wish to enjoy the surrounding waters and take in the natural beauty of the island.
Attractions on Pulau Perhentian Besar being based on its stunning nature.If you love the water and marine life try these: scuba diving at popular dive sites like Tokong Laut and Sugar Wreck and snorkelling at Shark Point or Tanjung Basi. If you love conservation projects, Perhentian Island is home to a large green turtle nesting population and volunteers are always needed to help in the conservation of them.
Those that prefer to stay on land can soak up the sun on one of Pulau Perhentian Besar’s stunning beaches, while nature lovers can go on a 30-minute jungle trek between Watercolours Paradise and Arwana to see monitor lizards, monkeys and fruit bats.
Restaurants and Bars
Prices for food and drink tend to be a bit higher on Pulau Perhentian Besar than on the mainland due to the cost of bringing everything over. As a result, many resorts offer all-inclusive packages to their guests. There are also many small beachfront restaurants that serve BBQ seafood and local Malay cuisine, while the village itself is the best place for cheap meals.
Souvenirs on the Perhentian Islands
There are shops in each beach area for picking up souvenirs, snacks and sundries, but little else, while the dive shops sell snorkelling and diving gear. The main village also has a few shops for getting necessities.
