When I first stepped on the beach, I saw the beauty, but the true one was yet to be uncovered.
From the early morning arrival, soon the sun king rose and on that moment I saw it: as in the movies, as in heaven, as in the dreams; unspoiled, deserted, giving of joy Turtle Beach.
Things kept its pace when snorkeling, swimming with blue spotted sting rays, black tip reef sharks, napoleon fishes and other hundreds of beautiful creatures.
There it is! We found it, look no further! As I said before, you are the universe! Just be it.✨
Our favorite bay in Perhentian Kecil (small island).
First there is a short walk inside the jungle, helping the movie vibe, than you push the branches and reveal the landscape!
If not coming by the 3 jungle treks that end here, you can rent a boat from rm 15-25 depending from where you depart from.
The beach is perfect, white sand, lush greens, crystal clear water, corals, rocks and islets nearby perfectly arranged by mother nature.
The snorkeling don’t fall behind; colorful corals, wild range of fishes, sharks, sting rays and much more.
While there’s the possibility of meeting someone at the bay, the greater chance is to be there by yourself. We’ve been there twice, alone.=]
Adam and Eve
Our second favorite in Perhentian Kecil.
It may be your favorite, Turtle and Adam and Eve are close runners.
For us the deal breaker was the snorkeling, Turtle was richer in marine life.
As you can get by name, here was the original location of the Garden of Eden. Just kidding, but it might as well be.😜
Just like Turtle, the access is done by 3 jungle treks or by boat.
From here you can snorkel to the nearby nameless small bays.
The main stretch of sand in Perhentian is Long Beach, it is not the most beautiful though.
Perfect for those looking for night life and meeting lot’s of other travelers, not recommended for families or people looking for a quiet place.
There’s a lot of budget accommodation, restaurants, shops, bars and dive centers located there.
Unfortunately it may not be the safest place, there’s history of burglary.
Make sure the windows and door of you room is well locked and don’t leave nothing alone at the beach while bathing.
*There’s no facilities at the bay, bring water and anything else you wish.
You can walk to D’Lagoon to eat, or to take the boat to eat somewhere else.
*If you came by boat, you can fix a time to be picked up from the bay.
*Don’t leave anything at the beach, it can get stolen.
*Don’t step at the corals and bring your trash with you when you leave.
*The path in between Turtle and Adam and Eve takes around 10 min.
*Special attention is required towards belongings when staying in Long Beach.
Keep an eye on your drinks as well.
