After the registration is done, we decided to fill up our stomach at one of the food stalls in the jetty complex. There are not many food choices here but is good enough for us to fill up our stomach. We ordered chicken rice as our lunch.

The journey from Mersing to Tioman takes about 90 minutes, upon arrival at Tioman (Genting Village), we proceed to Sun Beach Resort reception for check in. The sea journey is a smooth one, i believe it is due to shiny weather on that day.

This is where we are staying, Sun Beach Resort! We are staying in the beach front Standard Chalet (on the left hand side). There are only a limited unit of beach front standard chalet available in the resort, but we managed to get it as the occupancy rate is not that high during that day, probably it is due to the fasting month.

This is how the beach in front of our chalet looks like, golden sandy beach.

This is the other side of the beach, where the Blue Ocean Suite located. According to the staff, the Blue Ocean Suite is newly built and it is the highest range of room category in Sun Beach Resort. Even though we are not staying in this suite, but the staff allow us to take some photos within the suite. The suite is with 2 bedrooms, suitable for family vacation or friends gathering.

Our breakfast in the resort cafe, did not really count on it, but i think there are 10-15 choices on the long table.

After breakfast, we proceed to rent the snorkeling equipment and life jacket from the snorkeling center. The snorkeling mask cost RM10 per set and the life jacket cost RM8. You may consider to rent a fin too but in my opinion it is not recommended to do so as you may potentially damage the coral if hit it accidentally with the fin.

        Hi Simon,
        Thanks for your reply.
        Currently, I do not have the exact date, but planning to go on September. Is there any transportation as I am from
        Klang. Second, is it minimum need 2 person to buy the package? And last, I prefer jungle trekking. Please send me email for the details. Thank you so much!

        • Simon Lee

          Hi Joelle,
          Thanks for your message again. In case from Klang, the nearest bus terminal will be Klang Sentral, but unfortunately there is no bus departs from this terminal to Mersing. You will need to go TBS as there is daily coach departs for Mersing. Please kindly refer to this travel guide for more information.
