Perhentian Island located on the Eastcoast of Peninsular Malaysia. There are two islands that form Perhentian, the large island which is called Perhentian Besar, and the small island which called Perhentian Kecil.   

The island is under Terengganu state, but the island is near the capital city of Kelantan state Kota Bharu. It is well-known for the stunning clear waters, fantastic coral reefs and amazing marine life.   

Perhentian Island is an amazing snorkeling site with barracudas, black reef tip sharks, humphead parrotfish, cuttlefish, blue spotted rays and green turtles. This great location, Teluk Pauh, is right in front of the Coral View Resort as well as in front of the Perhentian Island Resort (PIR).  

Best time to visit is between October and March. The monsoon season puts all tourist activity at the eastern side of the peninsula to a complete stop; as this monsoon is very heavy.
