Perhentian Islands. North East Malaysia.

Following on from Malacca we will travel by bus up to KL, fly on to Kota Bharu in the far north east corner of Malaysia, take a taxi down to Kuala Besut, ( 1 hour ) and then on to the Perhentian Islands by boat. ( 30 minutes)

A boat trip of 20 klm from " Kuala Besut ", ( the closest port ) will take us to the beautiful Islands of the Perhentian's.

These are arguably the most beautiful islands in Malaysia, with crystal clear waters full of quality coral and abundant marine life.

Ive been to many islands in my travels but i must say the Perhentians where a big surprise and we will kick it of from Malacca and the bus that took us up to KL.

Enjoy the trip.

cheers

Crystal lodge. Stay here if you ever go to kota bharu.

We paid 90 ringit for a deluxe room with all the fruit, this was exceptional value and money goes along way in this part of Malaysia.

The boat was powerful and fast but too bad if it rained.

There is cheap backpacker accommodation available as well as better resorts. You will see in the following photos.

The Perhentians consist of 2 islands very close together and one is aimed at back packers and the other goes for a different market.

The backpackers stay on Palau Kecil , the others stay on Palau Besar and you can catch a boat between the 2 for 10 ringit.

We stayed on Palau Kecil where there was a bit more happening but being low season there was only a handful of punters there.

This was good for us as we scored a great bungalow looking down the beach for 90 ringit with aircon and hot water.

Secluded bays with only a few bungalows.

This place is much like Samui was back in the 80's so i suggest if any of you fellas want a flash back, id be heading down here.
Dont expect any Waccy Tabbacy as its not very kosher but you can get a nice cold beer.

The Beach.

Im a beach person and always on the look out for places where there ain't to many punters. This place took me back to when i was living on Koh Phangan in the 80's and its been along time since I've been able to find some thing similar. Once again the trick is to be there outside tourist season and we were lucky with the weather. Bloody wonderful it was.

This is a beautiful photo taken by the GF.

This photo was taken standing on our balcony and as you can see we near on had this place to our selves. This was taken 3 weeks ago and the monsoon was due in November. All the dive shops where closing down and getting ready to head back to the mainland till next February. We took our chances with the weather and hit the jack pot but we deserved it for making the effort to get here. Anyway, thats the last photo for tonight and ill be back tomorrow night to throw up some more.
