Island Escape

The joys of spontaneity can lead to exciting things.. Last Sunday we got tickets, Tuesday we left and Friday we returned.. Just like that!

It was first time going to Malaysia's East Coast Island "Pulau Perhentian" (the small one) after hearing so much about it and seeing the photos it finally came to pass. A quick flight from KL to Kota Bharu, taxi to Kuala Besut and 1/2hr fast boat to the island landed us with wet feet in a chalet at Panorama courtesy of the lovely Sharon Rozario.

Activities included:
  • Chilling
  • Eating (a nice variety of international foods)
  • Swimming
  • Snorkeling
  • Walks on the beach
  • Hikes
  • Fishing
  • Island Hopping
  • Music & Movies
  • Playing Uno
  • Dancing & More

If you've never been, you really should check it out. At certain times of the year the Green and Hawksbill turtles nest and you can easily see them if you dive or snorkel. But make sure you visit between March and October to avoid monsoon season, which makes it very difficult to boat to the islands. I'll be back again next year!
