Perhentian Besar Island

Want to catch a glimpse of turtle hatchlings but think the Turtle Corridor located by the coast of Borneo is a tad too much effort? Consider this your next best alternative.

As this piece of turtle sanctuary is easily accessible from Kuala Besut Jetty and the nearby, Lang Tengah, and Redang Island, making your way to this spot is absolute hiccup free.

Expect similar island settings, this sanctuary here is as scenic as the Perhentian Kecil Island. May to September will be the best time to visit. However, patience is virtue here. Adopting the pace of nature is the key to successful sightings here.

Gentle reminder, no visit when the monsoon hits!
