Pulau Perhentian Island

 
 

The Legend Of

Perhentian Island

 

In ancient times, there was an enormous and powerful dragon called Naga Pulau Beluang residing in Tanjung Basi of Perhentian Besar Island. One day, as he was basking at the highest point of the isle, another male dragon suddenly attacked his beloved island. The other dragon?s severe assaults were threatening to sink the island. All ablazed. Naga Pulau Berjuang swiftly descended upon his annoying rival and shortly a tremendous battle of epic proportion arose.   As Naga Pulau Berjuang descended, he left a marked trail on the island presently known as The Dragon?s Trail (Jalan Naga). Another remarkable local legend pertaining to this exotic island is it is free from any species of poisonous snakes.

 
 

 

The existence of a powerful guardian dragon as well as keladi lekir (Araceae Arnorphophallus) and akar cina putih (white Chinese roots) completely neutralizes the poison of any straying venomous species. Located 21 kilometers from the coast of Terengganu, the islands of Perhentian Besar and Kecil offer amazing snorkeling spots in their boulder-encrusted bays. The aquamarine waters with excellent visibility and spectacular underwater reefs make Perhentian the preferred choice of veteran divers. Plunge in and experience the thrill of seeing mania rays. reef sharks and barracudas. Arrangements can also be made for jungle trekking. island cruising and boats can be hired to look for small bays and secluded coves in which to swim, snorkel or scuba dive.
