|Leisure Dives at Pulau Tioman|
Less than 50 kilometers off Malaysia’s East Coast lies a Paradise Island called Pulau Tioman.
Also known as Turtle Island by the locals for its abundance of turtles, Tioman was once awarded the title of The World's Most Beautiful Island by none other than Time Magazine. And the moment Tioman's emerald shores appear on the horizon during your ferry journey there, you'll instantly understand how the island earned its accolade.
Tioman is a one-of-a-kind enchanting gem of an isle, complete with endless pearly-white sandy beaches and swaying coconut trees, set in the middle of a generally calm, turquoise sea.
But Tioman is particularly well-known amongst the international scuba diving community for it clear-as-gin seawater and awe-inspiring marine life, both animal and plant. Tioman is, in fact, a haven for scuba divers who wish to see all that tropical seas have to offer within a weekend's worth of scuba diving sorties. It's not by chance that most scuba divers that visit Tioman come back again and again.
Tioman's waters are rife with spectacular underwater animal life and exotic coral reefs. Dive below and you'll instantly stumble upon a complete treasure trove of breathtakingly stunning riches, from the ever-present brightly-colored corals to fish and shellfish in all shapes and sizes.
But sea urchins, sea anemones and various species of starfish make their home in the sea habitats around Tioman too. And even sharks, dolphins, rays and other large pelagics are common. And let's not forget the great variety of eponymous turtles.
The best time to dive in Tioman is now, when the reefs are teeming with courting and mating fish. The black-tip reef sharks, oblivious to their surroundings, might swim right past you, too busy to notice you. The most spectacular show is the one given by the cuttlefish that gather in large groups of about 10-15 and dance around each other. It has to be seen to be belived.
So if you're looking for a scuba dive location that will have you all abuzz for weeks, then look no further than Pulau Tioman.
