Water and beach activities

You visit Tioman either to relax on the beach, or snorkel and dive.

A number of dive shops can bring you to the usual dive spots around the island. Expect to pay around 100 per dive, less if you dive more than once. A PADI accredited scuba diving course will set you back about RM950, and requires at least three days, out of which you'll spend a substantial amount of time outside the water reading textbooks and watching videos.

Almost all chalets, as well as a number of independent shops rent out snorkeling gear, canoes, and other water sports activities. If you book your accommodation as a package (as opposed to a room only), one or two snorkeling trips are included per day. During high season, expect to see more human legs, arms and people with life vests on these excursions than fish.

There is a small island just off the southern edge off the beach, which you can reach and circle by swimming. Don't do this if you are not a good swimmer, and take extreme care, as the narrow passage is also used by boats and ferries.


A number of places also offer round the island trips with stops at several beaches and outlying islands, and a short trek to a waterfall. Taxi boats can bring you nearby beaches for 20-70, depending on distance. Round the island trips with snorkeling stops and short jungle treks are available for RM100.
