Welcome to Pulau Perhentian
Pulau Perhentian comprises several islands, two of which are large and developed for tourism. These two major islands in the group are Kecil (‘Small’), popular with the younger backpacker crowd, and Besar (‘Large’). Perhentian Besar has slightly higher standards of accommodation, a slightly more packaged-group ambience, and attracts families. Both are traffic-free and share a laid-back islander vibe. Speedboats can take you out to five smaller islands for day trips. With relatively shallow and calm waters, great visibility and largely gentle currents, the Perhentian islands are an ideal place to snorkel or learn to dive.
