Inspirock Rating:
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 wonderful destination. Not much to do on the island but anyway you're here for the sea. And what... fish, clear, turquoise sea. The top.

  • If you are looking for the perfect beach, look no further. Soft sand, clear water, sourrended by jungle, very few visitors, cliffs, monkeys in the trees and a babyturtle station. 
  • A paradise when boats are not. It is wonderful to be there first thing in the morning. One of the beaches most beautiful that I've ever seen! And I have been fortunate to see many of them. A 'must see' of the perhentian Island, no doubt.
