Marine Park

The Marine Park is made up of the area around a group of islands namely

Pulau Redang, Pulau Pinang, Pulau Lima, Pulau Ekor Tebu,

Pulau Perhentian Besar, Pulau Perhentian Kecil, Pulau Susu Dara,

Pulau Lang Tengah and Pulau Kapas





Due to the eastern monsoon, the season in the Perhentians is effectively

limited to the period between April and October. Outside this, the seas

can be very rough and most accommodations are closed

Perhentian Besar & Perhentian Kecil

Of the two main islands, Perhentian Kecil, the more popular of the two,

has cheap accommodation and a bit of a backpacker party scene,

while Perhentian Besar is slightly more expensive and caters more to families
