The principal reason that most visitors head to the east coast of peninsula Malaysia is for the large number of beautiful beaches. Either on the mainland or on one of the many islands along the east coast such as Pulau Redang, Perhentian and Tioman further south, there are some great palm-fringed beaches and wonderful scuba diving.
- Take a boat trip to discover nearby islands, bays and villages
- Snorkel the turquoise waters and admire the spectacular array of marine life
- Soak up the rays on the sugar white beaches
- Trek through the fascinating jungle
Accessed by a short flight from Kuala Lumpur into the town of Kuala Terengganu and best visited from March to October, the east coast is the perfect place to relax after a busy holiday exploring the rest of the country.
