    • Going in February

      by matthew.pidoux Online Now Dec 16, 2013 at 7:01 PM

      Hi I'm interested in going to Palau Tioman in late January, early February and was curious about the monsoon. Is the resort open to tourists during this time of the year. Are the main snorkeling and diving spots open?

      Can you recommend any other alternatives if this is the case during this period from late January to early February.

      Many Thanks

      we are looking for safe accommodation near/at the beach, where our kids can spend most of the time playing on clean sand, and hopefully snorkel/ swim near /feed fishes, without having to book a boat to another area. We'll probably book a boat for only once in our trip of 5 days. any recommendation. With restaurants nearby. accommodation budget around RM100-130 per day. thanks for any suggestions!

    • Surfing in september

      by TessieB Online Now Jul 23, 2012 at 12:20 PM

      Me and my boyfriend are planning a trip to Malaysia from mid september to the beginning of October.

      We are thinking about visiting Pulau Tioman as it sound amazing. He loves to surf, but it sounds like most people come to surf in the monsoon at the end of October and November. Would it be possible to surf from Juara in late September?

      I'd love to hear if anyone has seen people doing it at this time of year or tried themselves.

    • Tioman Waters

      by mtolderlund Online Now Feb 9, 2012 at 1:36 PM

      I am considering going to Pulau Tioman for the first time. First time to Malaysia alltogether.

      I am thinking about staying at Berjaya Tioman Resort, which supposedly should have decent snorkeling right off the beach. Is this true?

      If it is, how are the waters there generally? I am not really a strong swimmer.

      If there are better places on the island to snorkel off - which has calm waters - I'd appreciate if anyone would mention them :-)

      Thanks in advance

    • Is it better to pre-book boat rides to Tioman? From Mersing to Tioman Island

      by estheronholiday Online Now Sep 7, 2010 at 11:36 PM

      Is it better to pre-book boat rides to Tioman, or is it safe that at anytime we arrive at Mersing there will be plenty of boat rides or ferry rides that we can buy on the spot?. I am going on a public holiday.
      As i tend to drive there, i dont know exactly what time i arrive to Mersing, so i was thinking would it be a good idea that once i arrive, i can buy the next boat ticket out??.

      Also, I am staying at berjaya tioman hotel, does the ferry or speed boat dock near the berjaya hotel?, or how do i get from the dock to the hotel??

      Thanks

      Hi All

      I will be staying at Japamala resort in October this year. I have been reading all your suggestions about visiting various beaches, snorkeling, jungle trekking and dining on the beach. I was wondering how accesible other beaches and restaurants are from Japamala? Can I walk or take a water Taxi and what would you recomend is the best beach in Tioman?

      I see also that people have recomended snorkeling tours and an island tour? Would I be able to book these from Japamala or elsewhere?

      Is there any transportation available at night?

      Any help will be greatly appreciated!

      Thank you very much
