How Hot is this Dive Site? click a star to rate it
Pulau Perhentian is a great island which is not well known by international divers or travellers. It offers great dive sites and beaches that are not crowded like Bali and Thailand. If you are wishing to go there the best budget places to stay are at Long Beach on Pulau Perhentian Kecil. If you prefer staying at more expensive hotels and resorts you can find them on Pulau Perhentian Besar. Almost everyone on the Island can speak English and they are really friendly. I would recomend to go diving with Spice Divers website because they are the only locally owned and operated dive shop on the island, they provide the best services and are really friendly. The instructors there speak English, Malay, German, French and Italian.
