East Coast Malaysia

Venture a little further off the beaten track as you explore Malaysia’s lesser visited eastern coastline, where you’ll discover magnificent natural splendour, extraordinary beaches and a tranquility unmatched in few Southeast Asian destinations.

Follow the path less travelled on the sands of Tioman, home to some of Malaysia’s prime diving spots, admire the soaring verdant hills of the Redang region and cast yourself away on the exquisite tropical islands of Perhentian.

Blessed with a long, golden coastline, fringed either side by shimmering azure waters and the glorious untouched swathes of Malaysia’s rainforest, the East Coast of Malaysia offers unbridled peace, tranquility and beauty.
