Tioman

Introduction

Tioman Island is located 56 km off the east coast of Malaysia. Culminating at 1040 meters, it is surrounded by reefs, but with no road: with the exception of 2 km between the airport and the Berjaya Tioman Resort, the only possible access is by boat... or by foot! With only one or two shops, the island does not offer interests other than diving and resting.
