Pulau Perhentian Kecil

4.2
Scuba & Snorkeling · Beaches · Lookouts

Small Perhentian

The smaller of the two coral-tinged Perhentian Islands, Pulau Perhentian Kecil remains more popular with the younger backpacker crowd due to more affordable living costs. Scuba diving, snorkeling, and a nascent nighttime bar scene all combine to ensure an energetic and entertaining holiday. A tiny cluster of uninhabited islets lies off the coast, and tours to these tropical paradises top many Pulau Perhentian Kecil itineraries. That said, it pays to plan ahead, as monsoon season heavily affects the eastern islands. Take a look at our Malaysia day trip planner to refine the details of your trip to Pulau Perhentian Kecil.

Where to stay in Pulau Perhentian Kecil

As the more popular of the two Perhentian Islands, Pulau Perhentian Kecil offers very little by way of luxury accommodations. Those looking to splurge a bit more should explore neighboring Besar. The most high-end lodgings on Pulau Perhentian Kecil remain self-contained chalets with air-conditioning, while the most affordable are bunk beds in multi-share longhouses--ideal spots for the budget-conscious traveler. Prices can be negotiated during the off-season or on weekdays, but be prepared to scramble for nicer options on the weekend. Plan ahead and reserve as early as you can.
