Perhentian Island

Located off the coast of northeastern Malaysia near the border of Thailand, belonging to the state of Terennganu, Perhentian Islands are mainly made up of the two major islands and several others that serve as uninhabited nature reserves. The two main islands are Pulau Perhentian Kecil and Pulau Perhentian Besar, also known as Small Perhentian Island and Big Perhentian Island, respectively.

The other, much smaller islands are located off of Kecil and are only day trip destinations for those looking to experience the beautiful corals and uninterrupted beaches. Activities other than just seeing the nature and beauty of these islands is strictly prohibited, and therefore these smaller island tend to be a lot less crowded.

Beautiful coastlines and pristine beaches are definitely to be expected at either island, but the cheaper accommodations and the more popular Perhentian Beach are located in Kecil, the smaller and more accessible island.
