Magical D’Lagoon and bye to paradise! Perhentian Islands, Malaysia

Last day of our special encounter with this place.
Salty skin, salty soul.
Interaction with a new culture and again our world becomes bigger! It’s true, the universe is always expanding.✨

D’Lagoon🏝

Teluk Kerma, mostly called D’lagoon due the long-running hotel at its bay, is an amazing beach in Perhentian Kecil (small island).

To Do🏊‍♀️

The island is gorgeous, just looking at it is enough!🌴
If you want to do something else though, there’s a dive shop, ATV’s, snorkeling equipment, banana boat, kayaks, and a free zip-line available at the hotel to further entertain yourself.
Hammocks and beach chairs are also placed around the beach with even a simple checkers with sea view.=]
There’s a turtle hatchery project being done by the hotel, you can see the baby turtles and eventually the mom! If the big turtle comes to the beach at night-time they will wake everyone up to see it (without interfering).🐢

Trekking🏃

There’s a jungle trek departing from behind the hotel leading to 3 different destinations: Turtle Beach (10 min walk), Adam and Eve( 20 min walk) and Long Beach(1 hour walk, steep way up, beautiful view though).
It’s perfect to explore different locations using D’Lagoon as a base.
If you are not into trekking, skip the Long Beach pathway (that can be done by boat), but don’t even consider skipping pristine Adam and Eve and Turtle Beach!

The Food🍛

The restaurant here is short on options for vegans, if possible bring some fruits along.
Other choice is visiting the neighbor bays and have something to eat there (still short on fruits but there’s much more meal options).
The boat will cost rm 15 to Long Beach where there’s nicer food options than Coral Bay for example.

Kota Bahru Airport

There’s a stall selling traditional Malay sweets at Kota Bahru airport.
Many of them are vegan and delicious, definitely worth the try.🍬
They can be a great souvenir as well, exotic new tastes are always a hit with my family.

How To Get To Perhentians

It is always hard to say goodbye.☀️
I try not to overthink on whether we are going to be back one day or not and let the universe work its magic.
There’s of course the melancholy of saying goodbye and the very human urge of wanting to be back, but even after that I reflect on the whole situation and come to the conclusion that moment was manifested, it existed beautifully, it was there, forever imprinted on my mind, on our superconscious in form of a delicate mandala of love.
Which reminds me that now is all that exists, so there’s no more melancholy or urges, just the universe, dancing!❤️

Bubbles🏖

Our favorite in Perhentian Besar due to the combination of factors: yummy food, great beach, peaceful environment, secluded yet offering facilities, full of sharks and great snorkeling.

To Do🐟

Chill! Just relax and appreciate the view!
Apart from that, there’s a dive shop, kayak, snorkeling, yoga and a turtle and reef conservation project.

The Food🍉

Delicious well seasoned dishes are available with plenty of selections suitable for vegans when comparing with other places in the island.
The fruit plate was big and sweet, opposite from what we had been experiencing in Besar, that seems to be scarce in ripe fresh fruits.
