Tioman Island, Malaysia

Tioman Island, Malaysia

Famous as the actual location of the dream island in the film South Pacific, Tioman Island is also home to a remarkable rainforest and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Surprisingly, it is still relatively ignored on the tourist trail. Those that do come here will find a jaw-dropping isle where the wonder of nature will truly inspire you, with giant, lush mountains and azure waters combining to create one of the most colourful islands in the region.

The tourists who do come to Tioman Island usually take part in one of the many jungle treks that are available; the route to Monkey Bay is particularly popular for finding secluded spots. There are also good opportunities for snorkelling and diving and given the island’s proximity to Singapore, the water is surprisingly clear.

Coral reefs surround the area with schools of fish that swarm around you whilst you are swimming. If you are looking for a little fun and cheap accommodation, then Tekek Village is the place to be. With beachside huts and nightly barbeques, you may find a little bit of paradise here.
