The Seribuat Archipelago, off the east coast of Johor, is a constellation of some of Malaysia’s most beautiful islands. Of the cluster of 64 islands, most people only know of Pulau Tioman, the largest, which is actually a part of Pahang. This leaves the rest of the archipelago as far less-visited dots of tranquillity.
Divers can expect to see excellent coral and an array of marine life, from butterfly fish and parrotfish to barracuda, giant clams and more. The waters around the archipelago are frequently whipped into foam during the monsoon (November to February), so ferry services can be patchy, especially during the high monsoon (November and December).
