Rest and relax in the stunning Perhentian Islands located in the South China Sea, just off the northeastern coast of peninsular Malaysia. Spread across two islands – Perhentian Besar (big) and Perhentian Kecil (small), part of the Pulau Redang National Marine Park, embrace barefoot living and unwinding at this tropical getaway. Between the crystalline turquoise-blue waters and the network of rocky trails through lush wooded hills, explore a handful of small beaches, secluded coves, and viewpoints. Macaque monkeys and monitor lizards wander about inland, while blacktip reef sharks, turtles, and corals entice snorkelers and divers to Shark Point, Coral Bay, and a sugar hauler shipwreck site! Apart from your hammocks and beach picnics, there are kayaking excursions, seasonal turtle conservation projects, and fishing village interactions to experience, with colorful local water taxis to ferry you around. At the end of each day, spectacular sunsets and bonfires await you at the popular Love Beach and Long Beach.
