Other than the beaches, the main attraction of the Perhentian islands were the pristine corals that surround the area. We spent a great day snorkeling the islands best reefs with the highlights being the appropriately named "Turtle Point" and "Shark Point". After 7 months traveling Charlies swimming has seen radical improvements, as before we started Charlie claimed not to be able to swim. So who would have thought she would have been swimming after Black Tipped Reef Sharks off the coast of Malaysia. We saw 2 turtles off turtle point and no less than 9 different sharks patrolling the waters off Shark Point.
We stayed three nights on the Perhentian Islands with the snorkeling undoubtedly being the highlight. Then it was a boat back to the main land before taking a 9 hour bus to Kuala Lumpur.
