Add a Point to the Map

You can call Tekek the city of Tioman as it is the most bustling village with ample accommodation options, activities and some hint of a night life. The airport is also located here.

The village is seeing some construction still ongoing behind the Tioman Marina that has been a disappointment for advocates of Tioman's marine life. This is since the building works and increased tourism will lead to a deterioration of the island's biodiversity.

Beachwise, Tekek is not the best, but it is better than Air Batang. It has more areas devoid of dead coral and waters, although not clear, are clean.

There are spots for you to lounge and frolic in the water with enough privacy. Locals are extremely friendly with touts almost non-existant; the only ones are drivers asking if you want a ride a quoting you a price that might be higher than necessary. However, even then it is rarely the case.

Diving and snorkeling trips can easily be arranged on Tekek.

Most activity happen in the south and middle of Tekek but the north should also be visited, on top of a trip to the Marine Park.
