Activities to do in Tioman Island – How to Enjoy the Island Life

Located off the coast of Malaysia, the small island of Tioman will mesmerize you from the moment you get there. The place is ideal for jungle treks, snorkelling, being a foodie or a good old beach bum. Do read on for a look at the best activities on Pulau Tioman.


You Can Hit the Beach, Chill and Enjoy Salt in your Hair

If you are planning on staying at island hotels like Berjaya Tioman Resort, the beach will be your front yard. So, you wake up to the sound of the surf and fill your day with plans of snorkelling, diving, beachcombing and just plain chilling on a shady spot of the beach.


Be an Island Food Connoisseur

Pulau Tioman is very kind to the foodie; the place is perfect for savouring a variety of Malaysian goodies including loads of fresh seafood. Head out to the local villages for sampling traditional delights such as nasi goreng, ramly burghers, sates and Roti Canai. There's more of course, and you've got to explore and savour. Tioman island restaurants located at the star class resorts are ideal for a classy night out, plus they have those fabulous beach bars where you can savour a sunset cocktail with that special someone or a bunch of happy friends; cuisine at the resort restaurants range between Malaysian, Indian, Thai, Chinese and western flavours.


Chase Waterfall and Explore Jungles

The verdant beauty of Tioman Island is not reserved to the coastline and coral reefs; instead, the picturesque island boasts some of Malaysia's best jungles. So, plan to get away from the beaches at times, and explore the interiors; get yourself a guide and go mountain trekking across lush foliage, witness the wildlife and stumble upon gushing waterfalls where a cooling dip will turn out to be one of the best pleasures of life you savour on holiday. You can hire a boat and make your way to the other end of the island, the Asah waterfall is pretty cool and provides the ideal backdrop to spend a lazy hour or two enjoying a picnic.


Check Out Coral Island

Coral Island is located a short distance from Pulau Tioman, the area is noted for its lures of snorkelling and deep sea diving. The coral beds surrounding the island are especially beautiful and are quite a treat as they expand for miles from the shoreline. In the water, you will come across laidback turtles, sharks and large schools of very colourful little fish. You can get to Coral Island via ferry or charter your own private boat.


Explore Pulau Tioman Marine Park

Eight closely located islands and Pulau Tioman have been deemed a marine park area; thus the area starting from the shore of the island is off-limits for development and is a protected zone. The place is perfect for swimming and snorkelling, especially since the waters are crystal clear and the environs are untouched and rather amazing to savour.
