Pulau Tenggol Destination Guide
Pulau Tenggol is another beautiful diving getaway and lies
just 45 minutes off Kuala Dungun in the south of Terengganu.
It is small - just 3km long and 2km wide.
However, this doesn't prevent it from being a paradise for
many people, especially diving enthusiasts.
The interior of the island is filled with steep, rocky cliffs.
This rocky terrain extends from the interior of the island
to the ocean and has created a dramatic 'drop-off' - a sort
of vertical canvas of marine life - that divers never seem
to tire of.
BEST TIME TO VISIT
Between March and October. Take note that most resorts are
closed during the North-east Monsoon, which blows from November
