West Malaysia (Peninsular)

Features at least 10 dive locations which are among the most beautiful in the world such as the famed Tioman Island, being featured in the 1958 movie South Pacific as “Bali Hai”, which was also selected by Time Magazine for being on of the world’s most beautiful beaches in the 1970s.

What about whale sharks and sea turtles off Redang Island? Discovering seahorses in the emerald waters of Sembilan Island, or diving at one of Peninsular’s best kept secret (shhhh), Tenggol Island, referred by some locals as Peninsular’s ‘mini Sipadan’. Diving in this region is largely “resort-like” with meals typically being catered for.

While travelling times may take a few hours from the capital (Kuala Lumpur), it is well worth the trip… what’s more relaxing than getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city and literally just eat sleep dive repeat.

Fly into Peninsular Malaysia via Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Langkawi.
