Pulau Perhentian Besar

(4.2/5 based on 600+ reviews for 8 attractions)
Things to do: beaches, shopping, adventure

Large Perhentian

Pulau Perhentian Besar looks almost otherworldly with its blue waters, lush jungles, and white-sand beaches. Palm trees line the shoreline where tourists dive, snorkel, and swim with exotic fish. On land, you can choose between hiking, beach volleyball, and fishing. Include PADI certification in your Pulau Perhentian Besar itinerary and view coral reefs and sunken ships up close. To get around, wander freely on the well-established jungle trails or use the water taxi service. Avoid going between October and March, when heavy rains plague the islands and many hotels and ferry services remain closed for business. Our Malaysia itinerary maker combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
