Top 5 Beaches in Tioman Island

Genting Beach

Tioman Island is certainly a great place to visit while in Malaysia. Located just off the east coast of the peninsular, the island is quite a star amongst tourists who look for the perfect gateway that comes with the white sandy beaches, the sun and the beautiful palm trees swaying in the gentle breeze overlooking a beautiful crystal clear ocean.

When on the island, beach hopping is a must. The best time to come is before the monsoon season begins because the monsoon season brings along heavy rains and strong winds. This season makes all water and beach activities almost impossible and some can be quite dangerous. Boat rides to nearby islands may also not be very comfortable ones due to the choppy sea.

Juara Beach

Exploring the beautifully scattered beaches of Tioman would mean a day filled with adventure. One great beach to start off your journey touring the best of the beaches the island has to offer is the Juara beach. Deemed the best beach in Tioman, this beautiful golden sand beach which also comes with a small hill nearby and a lagoon on the southern part of the beach, this is a nice place to relax, soak up a tan and just take in the beautiful view. A hike into the jungle and up the hill is an adventure in itself and is a must do when on this beach.

Salang Beach

Then, head on to the Salang beach which is a beautifully shaped crescent that features white sand looking out to a beautiful bay. The breeze here is slightly gentler and the northern part of the beach which is not so popular among tourist is a great place to sit down and read a book as enjoy the gentle beach. Salang beach at the southern end is more popular and is a great place to go snorkeling. The water is warm and very clear, making it an ideal and magical spot to explore life under the sea, right here on Salang Beach in Tioman! Tiomans popular village which features great dining places, resorts to consider and great shopping deals is a must visit!

Monkey Beach

Get on a water taxi or hike through the highlands for a better adventure from the nearby Salang beach and you will find yourself at another breathtaking and spectacular beach-the Monkey beach. Here lays a great place to enjoy the view of the crystal blue water and soak up a tan. Classes for diving in shallow waters are held here and are great places to be in if preferring a more reserved spot on the beach. There are many resorts nearby if you choose to stay and make this beach your ideal spot to laze around on every morning.

Genting Beach

The Genting Beach is another great beach to consider including on your to-visit beach list. Here lies a very narrow stretch of white soft sand jiggered by the luscious green hills and the hard granite boulders giving the place a unique charm. If you love living it up at the beach front, this beach has it all with a path for pedestrians at the beach takes you along a wide array of restaurants, duty-free shops and charming chalets. The end of the pathway stops at the village of Paya which is a quaint village to visit. The jungle trails nearby is an amazing place to explore wildlife and just relax in a spot and listen to the call of birds.

Berjaya Beach

One other beach to consider which should be on the top five best beaches of the island is the Berjaya beach. Shaped like a crescent, this beach is an ideal spot to call it a night. The popular Berjaya Tioman Beach Resort is here and is a great place to stay in, overlooking the beautiful crystal clear water, surrounded by the rainforest and an amazing golf course just for your convenience! The beach is a great place to call it a day and at night, the hotel puts on spectacular shows and holds a couple of beach activities.

  4. Hi Simon,

    We’re planning on going to tioman on 27/sept to 28/sept, it’s an impromptu trip overnight stay. We can’t decide which village to go, basically we want a quiet place (less tourist), nice beach view, have good place to eat and where we could snorkle or dive or ride a bike (hire a car) to juara island. We’re thinking either ABC or Salang or Tekkek based from the blogs that we’ve read. Hopefully you could help us to decide and recommend some inns where we could stay as it’s just a short trip.

    Thank you in advance for your help! Please email me.. Have a nice day!

  19. Hi,
    I am planning to go to Tioman from the 26th to the 28th with around eight people. Is there anything where we can find a nice beach combined with snorkeling and diving opportunities?

    Would be great to get a good advice. We are coming over from Singapore.

    Thank you very much,


      1. Hello Simon,

        I have the exact same request as Anna: I’d like a nice beach, combined with nice snorkelling close to the beach, AND a correct and clean hotel! I’m travelling from Johor Barhu from 24th to 28th of August,

        I went to Salang back in August 2012 and I loooved the beach, snorkelling and restaurants around, however I didn’t find the accommodation to be very attractive (no mosquito nets, mice in the room at night…)

        I was recommended Paya Beach which seems to combine all my criteria, but I am open to any good advice from you!

        Many thanks!
