12 Years Of Travel: Perhentian Kecil Beach, Perhentian Islands, Malaysia

Malaysia’s Perhentian Islands are a backpacker haven with great beaches and cheap scuba diving

28 June 2006, 9 Years Ago This Week: I’d been commissioned to write a story about diving in the Perhentian Islands by Asian Diver magazine – while it’s a bit of a trek to get there, the sense of really being on a paradise island was hard to shake. (I wrote up a quick guide to diving the Perhentians if you’re interested in exploring underwater rather than just up top).

I haven’t been back to the Perhentians since, and I’ve heard that it’s already starting to feel a bit overdeveloped, so I think this is one place I’ll leave to fond memories.
