Gallery: A summer in Pulau Perhentian

Just under 20km off the Northeastern coast of West Malaysia in the state of Terengganu lies the Perhentian islands (Pulau Perhentian in Malay).  Made up of 2 main islands, Kecil (small) popular with the younger backpacker crowd and Besar (large) with higher standards of accommodation and a more relaxed ambience,

A great place to spend the summer season, wether it be learning to dive or immersing yourself into the island lifestyle. While you can usually find a beach party, the Perhentians is a far fetch from having a Thai style party atmosphere.
