Though my time was limited in Pulau Perhentian, I certainly enjoyed the trip... (We charted a boat for the full day from Pulau Redang to do some diving at the sites around the island).
All three dives were quite interesting: Temple of the Sea (and underwater sea mound), Vietnamese Wreck (Old US Landing Craft) , and Terumbu Tiga (Jumble of underwater boulders and swim throughs).
Even the ride over from Redang was quite entertaining. There are quite a number of flying fish in the area, and they would launch one after the other out of the boat's wake as we cruised by. (Quite amazing....)
As far as the islands themselves are concerned, the only place that I saw on dry land was Long Beach, which I'm told is the center of activity for the islands. Mostly just a strip of huts that serve as guest houses, dive shops, and restaurants for the back packers who came out here.
It did feel kind of funny making a beach landing here. Jump off the boat, and come wading up through the waves and walk right into a beach side shack for lunch. (Just like Magellan used to do , maybe...)
Anyway, if you are looking for a relaxed beach location with great diving, which hasn't been exploited by the developers yet, this is the place for you...
This is probably the best dive site in the Pulau Perhentian area, an undersea mount just teeming with marine like which... more travel advice
Nice dive site off the east coast of Perhentian Besar. It consists of a number of large boulders and sheer rock walls... more travel advice
