Tioman Island

Tioman Island is a small island, 39 km long and 12 km wide, located off the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. The densely forested island is still sparsely inhabited, but is surrounded by numerous white coral, making it a haven for scuba divers from around the region.

Its beaches were depicted in the 1958 movie, South Pacific as Bali Hai. In the 1970s Time magazine selected Tioman as one of the world’s most beautiful islands.

The island is served by a ferry from the mainland near Mersing, but there is now propeller plane service by Berjaya Air from Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.
