One of the most beautiful beaches i have been to, the best in malaysia! Add this place to your trip if you want a bit of an escape from the usual hustle and bustle in malaysia. Visited in 2003

“Longer, nightlife, swimming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

This beach is definitely longer than Coral Bay. While it's better for swimming and night-life, expect less marine life.

“Island you have to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

This is paradise on earth. If you want night life don't come here.There are lots of places to snorkel, and I hired a canoe, and paddled to the next beachfront on Pulau Besar, which is where Flora Bay resort is. Also paddled to Pulau Kecil, eaually as nice. All the islands are relatively cheap to eat and hire equipment from. Shame to see so much dead coral here though.

“Nice Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Light Blue waters and not overly crowded. In the evenings there is also a small group that plays Beach Football.

“Would be great without all the boats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

This is the best beach on Kecil, but all the boats are taking up space and polluting the beautiful waters. Also can be dangerous with the current and all the boats as one that was full of passengers flipped right in front of us as we watched from the beach. Good thing no one was hurt! If they would use pier this type of incident would probably never happen.

The sand on the beach is mostly powder like and the water is very swimmable. You can snorkel on either of the far ends, but again watch out for boats! If you want a less hectic beach, go to Besar next to the Perhentian Island Resort, less crowded, less boats and calmer waters .

There are many restaurants along the beach, we ate at Andy's and definitely do not recommend this place! The lady who took our order clearly didn't like her job and didn't want to serve us. It was a chore for her. No smile, no thank you or you're welcome. Just a stone face and lousy food.
