Hailed as one of the best island getaways in the world, Tioman is famed as the setting for 'Bali Hai' in the Hollywood musical, South Pacific.

 

Pahang, the largest state in Peninsular Malaysia is also home to Pulau Tioman Island, an enchanting island in the South China Sea.  The state is blessed with a beautiful coastline, which offers endless tropical bliss for sun-seekers. Tioman is the largest and most developed of the volcanic islands that from the Tioman Marine Park.  According to legend, the island is the final resting place of a beautiful dragon princess.  Till today, the island bears startling resemblance to a sleeping dragon. A sense of peace tranquility and simplicity embraces visitors upon arrival.  The waters around Tioman are ideal for a host  of water sports activities, including swimming, boating, kayaking or windsurfing. 

 

Its warm waters and good visibility make it a paradise for underwater explorations. Discover astounding sights such as colourful gorgonian sea fans, staghorn corals, nudibranchs and beautifully sculptured sea sponges. Marine life such as Napoleon fish, golden striped Trevally, bumphead parrotfish and shoals of fusiliers swim playfully in the depths. Those without a strong affinity to water can enjoy these sights in a glass-bottomed boat.

 

Divers will enjoy trips to outlaying islands as it provides opportunities to encounter harmless black-tip sharks, Murray eels and other pelagic species. For a touch of adventure, take a boat ride to Monkeys Beach, or the uninhabited islands of Tulai and Renggis for a swim and picnic. There are several villages scattered around the island's coastline, the larger ones being Salang, Tekek, Genting, Paya and Juara.  Each village offers a different atmosphere and will be a unique experience to enjoy.

 
 

Salang, situated on the northwest of the island, enjoys immense popularity for its crystal-clear waters and colourful corals close to the shoreline.  Spend a day exploring the vibrant underwater gardens or enjoy a nap in a hammock while hearing the soothing sound of gentle waves.  A stroll by the beach in the evenings will reward visitors with a spectacular view of the sun setting against the horizon.

 

Tekek, located midway on the island's western coastline, has the longest stretch of beach on the island. This village is the gateway to Tioman by air and sea. It is also the closest village to the Berjaya Tioman Beach, Golf & Spa Resort, the island's only five-star accommodation.

 

The Genting Village, further south of Tekek, is enveloped by a serene and rustic atmosphere.  The tranquil beach boasts stretches of golden sand ideal for long strolls by the shore.

 

Juara, on the east coast of the island, is a secluded hide-away boasting a wide beach with fine spots for swimming, sunbathing or camping.  Marvelous views of sunrise can be seen from Juara.

 

The island's southernmost village, Mukut, is surrounded by nature at its purest form.  Towering against its skyline are the Twin Peaks or Dragon's Horns, an unmistakable landmark of the island. Click here for details.
