If you are a party animal - then this is the only place to be in Perhentian (either Besar or Kecil). If you prefer some peace and quiet - then would recommend you to be at Perhentian Besar. But both are awesome.

Perhentian Kecil, off the northeastern coast of Malaysia, is one of the most popular backpacker islands in Southeast Asia. Smaller and slightly rowdier of the two Perhentian Islands, Perhentian Kecil is a place to come for excellent diving, sunbathing, and socializing with other budget travelers.Can Travel by bus and stop in kuala besut bus terminal, or by air and land in kotah bahru and take the taxi going to the port and take a ferry/speed boat it will take you 30-45 minutes to long beach kecil.ferry boat first trips are 8:00am, 10:00am 12:00 noon and 4:00pm.Food,drinks and water activities are cheaper there, for sure you will enjoy snorkling and diving.One more thing be sure to bring enough cash before going to the island, they dont have atm machine there for now. Enjoy and have fun there :)

I stayed for 5 days and everyday was just amazing. Take a dip early in the morning among the rocks near Rock Garden Resort and you may find fishes swimming around you! There is also a small beach (you have to cross the rocky part or bring your stuff over the water to get there). The small beach is much more private than long beach.

Crystal clear warm water and beautiful clean white sand! Perfect spot for island living... snorkeling and diving are on offer all along the beach but not a huge amount other than that! There's a few small cafes and then a handful of lively bands at night so nobody gets too bored here.

Amazing white sand beach, but by night is a bit too much commercial, in the meaning that all the small bars offer terrible disco music + terrible local alcohol. Better drink beers. You should know I really am a party guy, but these were without quality.

By day is extremely beautiful!
