Tioman, Malaysia – snorkelling off the beach

Jump to last reply

Hi. I am planning my trip to Tioman Island this August and would like to know about good snorkelling places which can be reached just swimming straight from the beach without necessity to rent a boat.

During my stay at Tioman I would like mainly to snorkel but also take a few dives and do some trekking. After thorough research I came to conclusion that the most suitable place for me to stay would be Air Batang (ABC) due to its central location allowing access to jungle trails to Juara and Salang, and due to some remarks about good snorkelling along the beach north off the ABC and on Panuba Beach, Monkey Beach, and Monkey Bay (but I am open to comments on this decision too). I do plan to take some snorkelling trips to places like Renggis and Tulai islands but these are too expensive to do it every day.

Could anybody please provide and detailed information about specific places to snorkel off the beach around Air Batang? Thanks.
