Pulau Tioman, Malaysia

Tioman Island, Malaysia

Located roughly a two hours boat ride away from Peninsular Malaysia is the island of Tioman, a popular tourist destination that needs little introduction. The island was listed as one of the top ten best islands in the world by Time magazine back in the 1970s; and judging from the number of tourists we met on our way there, it seemed that its charm was still going strong. Having said that, it is still somewhat located off the beaten track for most foreign visitors to the country, thus the island still largely retain its rustic kampong (village) feel.

    Thanks for your report. I’m a frequent visitor of Tioman and your experience mirrors mine; I’ll never tire of its natural beauty.

    One thing I should mention is that the water visibility at the Marine Park near Tekek village depends very much on wether it rained recently. Downpours tend to wash down quite a bit of sediment into the bays, which affects the visibility.

    You’ll find that during dry spells (such as the April/May months) the visibility at the Marine Park is astonishing, like swimming in a swimming pool.

    @Bryan Norman: Thank you for your comments. Tioman is such a great and affordable place to unwind, isn’t it?

    Regarding the Marine Park, we recall that it was raining on our visit to Tioman, and yes this may have contributed to the water quality. We note however that the water at the Marine Park is still considerably murkier than the other diving/snorkeling sites.

    Agreed Tioman is a lovely getaway little pearl of an island. It’s a bit of the beaten track but for a long weekend, or even a regular weekend, it’s very much worth it. Like being in a Swiss Family Robinson episode 🙂

    P.S. I love your pix.

    Just a little P.S. from me.

    You see, I think this website (I posted it into the “website” field of this comment) may be quite helpful for Tioman revelers like you and me.

    It’s the the site to go if you want to buy your ferry tickets in advance. The benefit is that you’re no longer at the mercy of availability on the day of your arrival, which sometimes leads to some Tioman revelers being left stranded at the Mersing jetty on account of the ferry having no more seats left.

    Perhaps it can fit into your “Travel Info” section?

    Cheers!

    Hi,

    You can book a private transport service that will pick you up from your doorstep in Singapore and drop you off at the entrance of Mersing ferry terminal.
    The road there is narrow, deserted and dangerous, especially at night, so it is advised not to take a coach service if you are travelling in a small group or with children and elderly.
    Ferry tickets are available for purchase together with the vehicle+driver rental, so everything is smoothly planned.

    Look for me!
