Pulau Lang Tengah

Pulau Lang Tengah is a small postcard island with only 3 resorts located halfway between Perhentian Island and Pulau Redang.

Tioman

Largest island of Malaysias east coast. It’s located 32km off the coast and is some 20km long and 12km wide and the highest peak is Gunung Kajang with 1038m. In the 70ies TIME magazine selected Tioman as one the world’s most beautiful islands but lost some flair in recent years due to do development. The island has eight main villages, many beaches and is densely forested and is surrounded by numerous coral reefs, making it a scuba diving haven.

  • only beach on the east coast of Pulau Tioman
  • wide sandy beach, no rocks or dead corals like the western side beaches
  • not crowded as the other side
  • sunrise beach
  • during moosoon season (November to February), Juara turns into surfing destination (surf gets up to 15 feet), Tioman Surf Forecast, Tioman Surf Festival
  • there is a turtle conservation center at Kampung Juara (Juara Turtle Project JTP), turtle nesting season: March to October
  • Mersing ferries don't stop at Juara, so you need to get off at Tekek and go by 4WD taxi across the island to Juara
  • taxi fare (Tekek - Juara): 25 ringgit person, double if you are the only passenger
  • only accessable by 4WD from Tekek or privat speedboat from Genting, or for the hardcore travelers by a 3hours trek across the mountainous interiour
  • because of it's isolation Juara is less crowded than Salang, Tekek or Paya Beach
