Tioman is one of Malaysia’s unsung islands. This teardrop shaped dot in the ocean is a tapestry of tropical rainforest and pristine beaches lapped by the emerald green waters of the South China Sea. Without a doubt, this sought after destination, nestled off the east coast of Malaysia, is amongst the most beautiful islands in the world. Spanning a little under forty kilometres from north to south, Tioman might be small but it is mighty, considered a haven for barefoot luxury, scuba diving and spectacular trekking.
Leave behind the hustle and bustle of nearby Kuala Lumpur or Singapore and be lulled into an exquisitely laid back pace of life. On Tioman, while away your days plonked under the shade of a palm, or getting stuck in with the whole gamut of water sports offered on (and off) its shores. Scuba divers will be spoilt for choice; the sea is teeming with shoals of brightly coloured fish and home to some of the finest coral reefs in Asia. Snorkel, sail or swim in the blue hues of the ocean before finding your land legs ashore.
The verdant landscapes of the dense, misty junglescape are backed by steep hillsides, craggy cliffs and tumbling boulders which appear to have been frozen in time. Walk through the evergreen canopies on a jungle hike through orange blossoms, babbling streams and cascading waterfalls, watching out for the larger than life monitor lizards which roam the island. Accommodation on Tioman is in keeping with the island itself, decidedly rustic and exquisitely beautiful. No doubt, this is a place where authentic life entices, envelopes and enchants, the ideal place for you to truly escape on the ultimate island retreat.
