East Coast Malaysia
Malaysia's East Coast is a world away from the popular West Coast. Quiet, unspoiled and relatively untouched, the coastline is interrupted only by the occasional traditional Malay fishing village.
Between May and October this side of Malaysia is enjoying its best weather, making it a perfect time to visit Tanjong Jara, a traditional but luxurious reateat located on a secluded stretch of beach. Outside the Resort, enjoy cycle tours to nearby fishing villages, trek through the jungle, join a river cruise or explore the reefs by diving or snorkelling off Tenggol Island – one of Asia’s best kept dive secrets.
If you enjoy your diving head to the stunning island of Tioman, just an hour's flight off the east coast in the middle of a marine park. Here you can kick off your shoes and hide out at JapaMala Resort.
Hidden away from the rest of the island by jungle, this little diamond sits happily on its own stretch of perfect white sand beach. This is true rustic jungle chic and without a doubt the Seychelles of Asia!
