TIOMAN ISLAND

Pulau Tioman as it is locally known, is a relatively small island of 90 square miles. Pulau Tioman is a magnificent, ecologically rich and picturesque island, regarded as a jewel in the sea. Set like a glittering jewel amidst the South China Sea, Tioman Island, the largest of a group of 64 volcanic islands, beckons the visitor with its white beaches and crystal clear azure seas. It is believed to be one of the ten most beautiful islands in the world.

This volcanic island has steep slopes of lush green vegetation and a multicolored profusion of orchids and other tropical flowers. Stunning waterfalls cascade down these tropical slopes and make their way down through secluded sandy beaches to the clear blue waters and its iridescent coral reefs.

A sense of excitement and mystery pervades the island and the visitor will be enchanted by the picturesque beauty of this tropical paradise. Populated by friendly villagers who live an unhurried lifestyle, Tioman Island has a way of making your troubles seem like a thousand miles away.

Pristine beaches hug the island's perimeter, lapped by the clear water that reveals luminous coral reefs and abundant marine life.

The hilly inland area is virgin forest, best explored along the famous Cross-Island walk. Scuba Diving and snorkelling equipment can be hired, and PADI courses are offered in Salang and Air Batang. June to August is high season while November to January is monsoon season ( low season).

Part of a marine national park, Tioman is a perfect place for nature lovers. Its white sandy beaches, turquoise waters and majestic peaks attract adventure seekers and outdoor enthusiasts. The island’s tropical forest interior offers a haven for rock climbers, jungle trekkers and naturalists with its cascading waterfalls, jungle paths and tall trees. Walk out to some of Tioman’s reefs where novice snorkellers will find easy snorkeling, while further offshore, deeper waters provide excellent diving for Scuba enthusiasts.

There’s a series of peaks and ridges running along the central spine of the island, of which Gunung Kajang is the highest point with an altitude of 1049 metres. Other peaks that you may see are, Batu Sirau (747m) and Nenek Si-muka (659m).

Tioman is still largely undiscovered - its small resident population lives mostly along the west coast and the few resorts complexes on the island are also on the western side, leaving the rest of the island to nature’s devices. The island is divinely beautiful, pretty as a picture or something straight out of movies with the twin peaks of Batu Sirau and Nenek Semukut sloping dramatically up, deep green jungles ringed by sparkling beaches surrounded by brilliant blue seas. The outlying reefs are wonderful for diving, snorkelling or simply swimming.

Deeper inland, Tioman is a paradise of verdant tropical jungles, rioting wildflowers, trailing creepers of orchids, a profusion of feathery ferns all coming together in an explosion of glorious colour. Silver water cascade down mountainsides, metamorphose into placid pools and gentle streams that wend their way down past palm fringed beaches to the sea.

This is a great place to visit. The most popular beaches are located around the villages of Tekek, Genting and Salang.

GETTING THERE

There are daily flights to Tioman Island from Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. Departure point for boats is from the coastal town of Mersing, the journey takes one hour by Speed boat and 2 hours by Ferry. There is also a daily high-speed catamaran service between Singapore and Tioman, a 4.5-hour trip.

CLIMATE

The climate is a typical tropical climate, it's hot and humid all year round. The temperature rarely drops below 20C even at night, and usually reaches 30C or more during the day. Humidity is generally about 90%. The Monsoon Season is between December and early February.

WHEN TO GO

Peak season is between June and August.

During the monsoon season, from November to January when the island is devoid of trippers and tourists, sunbathing and swimming take a back seat to walks on the beaches around the villages of Tekek, Genting and Salang. The other attraction is to simply sit ashore and admire the stormy seas and grey-black skies.

Untouched with its natural beauty, Tioman Island draw thousands of tourist yearly to its beaches. Sun lovers and those who are fascinated by sea shells will find the miles and miles of palm-fringed beaches a sheer delight with their myriad varieties of these lovely sea creatures. You can spend hours just languishing on the white pearly beach, looking up the sun for the perfect tan. Popular beaches include the ones around the villages of Tekek, Genting, and Salang. A walk on one of these beaches at sunset is truly enchanting and will simply take your breath away.

This mysterious island mesmerizes all with it's bewitching equatorial beauty.
