Jungle trekking on Besar is nothing short of an adventure and like its sister island ‘Kecil’, it offers some cracking highlights.
The beaches of the Perhentian Islands are a mermaid’s paradise. Lined with fine white sand as far as the eye can see and coral just a few steps into the water, it’s brimming with an array of sea-life. But the islands’ beauty doesn’t cut off at your beachfront chalet. Upon approaching the Perhentians by boat, you are struck by their lush, green hilly peaks. Inside them, away from the bathing tourists, you can peacefully hike for hours and feel connected with the world amongst the calming, sweet-smelling vegetation.
