Your day-by-day itinerary
Mersing - Tioman Island
Arriving on Tioman by ferry from Mersing, you’ll step straight into a tropical daydream. From the jetty, you’ll be taken to the relaxed resort tucked away between the palm trees. There’s a beautiful beach on the doorstep, just beyond the swimming pool, so you’ll be spoilt for choice. If you’re feeling active, trek into the wild heart of the island, thick with jungle and scattered with waterfalls.
The next couple of days are free for you to do as much or as little as you wish. Tioman is a great place for taking time out, so melt into a lounger and soak up the sunshine. In the evenings, sip an ice-cold beer at sunset, grab a candlelit dinner on the sand or find a fresh fish barbecue. For something more authentic, hop in a water-taxi and explore the hidden villages and beaches surrounding the island.
Departure from Tioman Island
Early this morning it’s time to take the boat back to Mersing your Malaysia adventure. If this is your last stop before you fly home you may want to spend a night at Kuala Lumpur airport as the journey back from will take a few hours.
Like the rest of the east coast, most resorts on Pulau Tioman are closed from mid-October – February due to the monsoon season. The sea turtles start coming ashore around May.
