Perhentian Island Resort is an ideal beach resort for a leisurely family vacation in Malaysia. Surrounded by lush greenery, facing white sandy beaches and a warm blue sea, Perhentian Island is a holiday paradise not to be missed.
Perhentian Island, or Pulau Perhentian as the locals call it, is well known as a marine paradise and forms a parts of the National Marine Park of Malaysia.
In the surrounding areas of Perhentian Island Resort, you will find many things to see and do.

Perhentian Island lies along the flight path of this migratory bird. You might also see the harmless monitor lizard or even the unique Lutong monkey species.
