Pulau Perhentian Overview

Pulau Perhentian is an island situated in the east coast of Malaysia under the state of Terengganu.It is situated about a 30 minute speed boat ride from Kuala Besut Jetty.

There are 2 islands here called Pulau Perhentian Kecil (small island) and Pulau Perhentian Besar (big island). Pulau Perhentian basically translates to 'stop island', so called because it was a place used by traders and sea travelers those days as a stopping point.

It's a beautiful island with the only mode of transportation being sea travel on little boats or sampans. These days there are motorized speed boats but there is also a slow ferry still running from the mainland.

Pulau Perhentian is also a protected marine park and it's a divers haven.
