My hubby and i arrive in KL end of July and will be spending approx 10 days before leaving at KL airport.
After some research i found that Penang isn't really a "beach haven" (fail).
Which do you think is better? Perhentian or Tioman or Pangkor.
- Which would be easier to get to?
- I have set aside 3-4 days - is there other things to do there too ? Shopping,sightseeing, spa's
- Food - easy enough to walk in and grab something? or will we require a fishing rod & some matches?
- Which did you enjoy best?
Any experience you have had is appreciated
Thanks in advance :)

3The beaches in Tioman are really nice. But from KL maybe it's easier to go to Perhentian.
Penang beaches are not worth to see.

4Go to Perhentian!
Pangkor, Penang & Langkawi don't come anywhere near Perhentian's atmosphere & beaches. You should try get a cheap seat to Terengganu or Kelantan & hop on the ferries to Perhentian. Easy.
Penang has also nice beaches (National Park) and there you have all the other touristy stuff: shopping, culture, …

6Perhentian plus Redang if you have the time!
food is accessible - your budget more than fine
snorkelling, diving relaxing on the beach.
To me the best clearest calmest water compared to the rest.
**Jonnyon you can fly Berjaya AIr from KLIA to Tioman - this is an option
Langkawi beautiful beaches - which? Only at the top of the island datai bay or Tanjong Rhu nearby all expensive 1000SGD plus accomodation - otherwise would like to know where?

I have not as from Singapore they are too expensive to get to Tioman (we go car Mersing then Ferry) but Ihave lots and lots of colleagues/friends who fly with them no problems at all they fly out of Changi now - its only 45 mins or so so service no worries....
And i have to correct apparently they fly out of Subang not sure if KLIA or Budget terminal.
Last time on Tioman I met a couple who flew in/out on Berjaya to KL and they paid remarkably less than what it is priced from Singapore (but this is quite typical!)
