Pulau Tioman is the largest
in a group of 64 volcanic islands which includes Pulau Seri Bulat,
Pulau Sembilang, Pulau Tulai, Chebeh, Pulau Labas and Pulau Renggis.
Blessed with miles and miles of soft white sand, swaying palms and
cool waterfalls it is located about 80 km off Peninsular
Malaysia's east coast.
Tioman is a relatively small island measuring only about 12 x 7.3
miles. It is approximately half the size of Singapore. Culminating
at 1040 meters, it is surrounded by reefs, but no roads: with the
exception of 2km at the airport.
Noted for crystal clear water as far down as 35 metres, Pulau
Tioman is a veritable garden of colourful marine life, offering
underwater sportsmen some of the best site in the world. Said to be
the final resting place of a fabled dragon princess who had turned
herself into an island in the South China Sea, Pulau Tioman is truly
one of the most beautiful islands in the region.
waters around the island also offer visitors many fun filled water
sports facilities, water skiing, jet skiing, snorkeling, scuba
diving, underwater photography and many more. On the northeast is
the Tulai Island, which look just like a bat with outstretched
wings. The waters around this island are unbelievably clear and like
Tioman, it is a beautiful marine park. Snorkeling, Scuba diving and
underwater photography are the only activities allowed here. All
these islands are uninhabited and within an hours boat ride from
Pulau Tioman. The shallow reefs of Pulau Tulai and Renggis are
popular spots for scuba diving and snorkeling. Divers can explore
the underwater caves around Pulau Chebeh and the incredible beauty
of Pulau Sepoi and Pulau Labas reefs.
The 10-minute jungle trek to Rockfalls awards you with glimpses of
monitor lizards and exotic butterflies in their natural environment.
Golfers can hit the greens at the Tioman Golf Club, and get in 18
holes of relaxing golf.
Beaches to head for include the Air Batang Beach, Salang Beach (for
dives and snorkel), and
Juara Beach (perfect hideaway).
Pulau Tioman has accommodation ranging from
air - conditioned chalets, A-frame huts, condominiums, condotels,
resorts, bungalows and much more.
