  • We were hoping to snorkel and see the turtles but only quiet beach, big rock and nice white sand. Better bring your own food and drink if you want to spend some time there.

  • Beach was awesome, near the jungle and with very clear water. Snorkeling was really good here. You can go by taxi boat and ask to be caught up at one precise hour. We advise to go in the morning...

  • This island is not like Long Beach. It’s more quiet and not much activities. It’s very good for snorkeling and I’ve seen only two big turtles during my visit. You can rent or bring own snorkeling...

  • The best beach in Pulau Perhentian Besar. We have the beach fto ourselves for a while. The sea is blue and crystal clear. I did snorkel and I could see a different kind of fishs, even a Napoleon wrasse. Also there are some small sharks and rays. The sand is so small and feels perfect if you only want to swim. The best hour for pictures is between 11 to 15, as the sun makes the water look more turquoise.
  • one of the most serene beach in Perhentian.. crystal clear blue ocean that will mesmerize u.. activities u can do here is snorkeling, sunbathing & relaxing.. u don't need to swim far to see the fish, just by the shore only have so many fish.. seriusly a good place for u to relax..
  • Deffo one of the best beaches I’ve been to!! It’s a must! So lucky ‘cause there was almost no one!
  • The water here is sparkling blue and the beach has soft, fine, white sand. We stopped here for a break while island hopping and it was very relaxing to have a splash around the shallow water. Unfortunately there aren't many fishes to see here since there isn't any coral reefs nearby.
  • On July 19, 2021, I purchased the Turtle Beach-stealth 700 gen 2 wireless headset. The plastic holding the earpiece snapped off the headband. It’s the second headset in two years and they both broke in the same spot. Do not recommend. Invest your money somewhere else.
