“Located across the South China Sea is the beautiful, serene island of Tenggol. It is 26 km from the mainland of Kuala Dungun in the Malaysian state of Terengganu. The island is filled with rocky terrain amidst the lush jungle forests and stretches 50 hectares, 2 km at the widest point and 3 km at length.”
The island has more than 20 beautiful dives sites. With clear warm waters, this cozy little island hides a beautiful underwater world.The reefs around the island are home to many different species of marine life.
Tenggol was once described as the “Best Diving in Peninsular Malaysia” in Asian Diver Magazine. The rocky cliffs offer exciting dive sites and the fascinating coral reef architecture below is home to many of the world’s unique ocean species. For those looking for big fish encounters, Tenggol is along the whalesharks’ migratory route and are occasionally spotted between August to October.
