diving around tenggol island at Tanjong Jara Resort Malaysia

snorkelling kuala terengganu

Pulau Tenggol is a small island in the South China Sea off Tanjong Jara Resort, perfect for snorkeling and diving.
The island forms part of the Terengganu Marine Park and is still a well-kept secret amongst the diving community. This means the reef is in almost perfect condition and, for people in the know, it is considered the best diving in Malaysian peninsular.

Pulau Tenggol and its surrounding dive sites offer unforgettable underwater experiences for beginners and exciting adventures for experienced divers.  The Tanjong Jara resort’s guides, dive master and our PADI dive instructor, who are all accustomed to the currents, waters and tides around the island, accompany each trip.

If you decide you wish to progress from snorkelling to scuba diving, the resort’s PADI dive instructor would be glad to teach you!
