It was the 1958 movie, South Pacific, which brought the public's attention to the island but despite this exposure, development has yet to fully take over and the gorgeous natural scenery still survives. Sandy beaches line the coast, great snorkelling is available all over, some of the best diving in Malaysia exists here and as an added bonus to make your evenings even better – the beer is duty free! Salang Village is the hub for diving and as soon as you see the shimmering turquoise waters you'll want to dive in immediately. If you do find time to pull yourself out of the glistening warm waters there are also a range of land activities within a short distance from your Tioman Island resort. Various treks through the thick inland jungle are available and a trip to the crashing Asah Waterfall comes highly recommended. Rock climbing is also possible nearby to Juara Village and local companies will provide all the necessary equipment for beginners and advanced climbers alike.
During November to February the island experiences monsoon season and this is also when the island is at its emptiest. The rest of the year can get busy for short periods but generally solitude and isolation can be easily found. Book a stay in one of our Tioman Island resorts for a true escape.
