Ferry Ticket from Kuala Besut to Perhentian Island
Less than an hour away from the Malaysia's eastern coast lie the crystal clear waters of Perhentian Islands. With such spectacular natural sights and incredible surroundings, a ferry trip to the Perhentian Islands is like sailing into a different world altogether for a relaxing beach retreat.
While there are many water sports that can be enjoyed on these islands, the main draw really is the gorgeous and long stretches of wind sand beaches. Sun-worshippers and beach bums alike make their way to the Perhentian all year round to seek solace from their fast paced and busy lives at home. Spend the whole day soaking and sunbathing away under the sun or explore the deep blue waters and incredible reefs through a diving trip.
The best part about it is that the islands remain relatively untouched with only a small fishing village on the western island permanently living there. For the explorers at heart, trekking paths lead into and through the lush jungle of the Pernhentian Islands, allowing travelers to encounter some of the elusive and shy animals that call the place home.
Ferries are most definitely the best way to go when it comes to traveling to the Perhentian Islands. Ferries are affordable and the rides are not very long, rarely ever taking longer than 45 minutes. In fact, the longest ferry ride would probably only be an hour long. From Kuala Besut, ferries travel to two destinations: The Perhential Island Jetty and Long Beach Port.
You don’t need to worry about a shortage of trips as there are boats leaving every hour between the first trip at 8:00am and the last trip at 5:30pm. The routes are operated by five different companies: Seven Seas Holiday, De Penarik Beach Travel and Tour, Barracuda Holiday, Perhentian Sunny Travel and Perhentian Trans Holiday. They’re all fantastic companies that many travelers have recommended.
The best part of it all is that trips only cost MYR70 for round trip travel! Things get even easier when you book your tickets online on www.easybook.com as you can secure your seats without needed to make the trip to crowded booking offices.
