Top 5 Things To Do in Tioman Island – Get the best out of your holiday getaway...

Tioman Island is one of the best destinations in the world to spend your holiday enjoying the natural beauty and getting involved in a lot of fun filled activities.


Enjoying the Natural Beauty

Located off the coast in Malaysia the Tioman Island is a small but beautiful holiday destination blessed with the wonders of nature. The thick green rainforests, graceful waterfalls, wonderful beaches, and the surrounding coral reefs are among its best natural attractions. A daytime trek along the forest pathways can carry you through an adventure filled with lush greenery and rich flora and fauna. The red giant flying squirrel, mouse deer, and walking catfish are some of the species you would like to keep an eye out for. Beautiful waterfalls like the Asah waterfall will surely leave you mesmerized for a moment. This can be reached either by boat or by walking.


Climbing the Twin Peaks

The hilly surroundings of the Tioman Island provide an ideal setting for rock climbers to find their capabilities. However, the most daring and exclusive rock climb in Mukut village is the famous twin peaks of Gunung Nenek Semukut. Standing at a height of 690 metres, this is the highest natural structure in the whole of Malaysia. The climb is so challenging with unpredictable weather patterns and its dizzying height that the locals refer to it as the 'Dragon's horns'. There are only a few climbers who have successfully reached the peak which makes it an even more desirable challenge for the adventurous souls.


Go swimming with the fish

One of the main attractions in the Tioman Island is the dynamic marine life along its coast running from Pahang to the South China Sea. It is very common to catch tourists enjoying the sea while engaging in activities like diving, snorkelling, surfing, and swimming. If you are planning to stay on the Island for more than five days you can purchase a diving licence for around RM 1000, and enjoy the deep sea dives side by side with the colourful fish. For those who do not want to get into the sea, there are activities like paddle-boating and sea walking. You can also go on a fishing trip with the hope to catch a mackerel, snapper, golden trevally, grouper, or even a barracuda. There are no fishing restrictions in the Island, so you can sit back and relax while waiting for the fish to catch your bait.


Experience the Asian Cuisine

The variety of cuisine that the Tioman Island has to offer is amazing. Especially the seafood dishes prepared with their freshwater catch is mouth-watering and can do its wonders. There are many hotels and restaurants such as Berjaya Tioman Resort offering local cuisine, as well as some nice coffee shops, fast food restaurants, and bars.


Catch the Sunset

One of the best experiences that will create lasting memories in this Island is watching the sunset while relaxing on the beach. The famous Paya beach is an ideal place to chill out on your evening while sipping a beer. There are several points for watching the sunset on the horizon creating a magical environment. You can try a jetty, a beach, or one of the small restaurants with a clear view to get this experience.
