Perhentian Island offers one of the best places to snorkel, as the water is so clear that you will have no problem finding live marine life and coral. And if you are lucky, you can see turtles and sharks!

The challenge of kayaking

To see more of the island, consider renting a kayak that allows you to cross secluded lagoons and places that are not accessible on foot. You can see Perhentian Island from a whole new perspective.

Turtle watch

We all know that turtles are protected species and how difficult it is to protect them. Take this opportunity to soak up the wind, relax on the beach and watch these marine creatures walk in and out of the sea. Remember not to approach the delicate being and enjoy their nature from afar.

Connect with nature through trekking

If you feel adventurous, fasten your hiking boots and set out on the lush trails of the island. You will find all kinds of fauna and flora that live their best lives!

Overnight at Treehouse

Dig your usual hotel accommodation and luxury holiday home and choose a night in a wooden house! It brings back a lot of childhood memories and if you don’t have a tree house growing up, this is your chance to finally make those dreams come true!
