Turtle Sanctuary Beach, Pulau Perhentian Besar

(4.8/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Lounge on the soft white sands of Turtle Sanctuary Beach, a place where blue skies and crystalline waters come together. Snorkel and see a myriad of fish, colorful coral reefs, sea anemones, and even small sharks. With any luck, you may spot the large sea turtles that give this beach its name. Make sure to bring refreshments, as there are no facilities on this isolated beach, reachable only by water taxi.

  • A little corner of paradise, a taste of the Seychelles with these big rocks... The water is clear and turquoise, the sand. It was a bit overcast but the beach was really beautiful (the advantage there is nobody). Predict what eat on site, and water. Well shaded place. Get there by boat taxi of course for a dozen of ringgits.
