Surrounded by the South China Sea, Tioman Island is the perfect getaway in Malaysia where you can experience everything from underwater adventures to a memorable round of golf.
Snorkelling and Diving
The waters surrounding the island are home to an amazing array of coral and marine life which make snorkelling and diving amongst the best things to do in Tioman. Beach resort options are ideal in this regard and offer access to sites such as Coral Island, Pirate Reef, the KM Sipadan wreck and Tioman Marine Park home to wondrous underwater treasures.
Golfing in Tioman
Set amidst coastal views overlooking Renggis Island, the 18-hole, par 71 course at Berjaya Tioman Resort offers a rewarding round of golf for beginners and pros alike. Apart from the challenges of the course itself, you will have to deal with not getting lost in awe by the mesmerising backdrops of this tropical paradise!
Visiting Air Batang Village
For a change of scenery, while staying at resorts in Tioman, you can head to Air Batang Village. Referred to as “ABC Village”, this idyllic rural village can be found on the island’s west coast and can be reached by boat. It’s a great place to enjoy a laid-back coastal setting, a lovely beach and inspiring views.
Hiking to the Asah Waterfall
Amidst lush rainforests, you will find Asah Waterfall which can be visited via a hike along a jungle trail from the village of Mukut. The waterfall is at a point where seven rivers meet and is a good spot to have a refreshing dip.
