any budget is ok.

We stayed at Shari-La resort on Perhentian Kecil. Would highly recommend it if you want something a bit more "flashpacker".

Has a stunning private beach for sunbathing and can arrange snorkelling trips. Have a look at the reviews on here...

If snorkeling is all you are after, then do check out Abdul Chalet. Its located just beside TunaBay. Awesome place. Make sure u enquire for the Seaview suite.

I thought the beach around Tuna Bay/ Abdul's was busy and small. If you stay on the bay above it (Coral View), you can easily walk to Teluk Pauh (in front of PIR) - a much better, bigger and quieter beach.

Places to stay are Coral View, The Reef, Watercolours and others. Watercolours restaurant has free wifi
