Pulau Tenggol is another beautiful diving getaway and lies just 45 minutes off Kuala Dungun in the south of Terengganu. It is small - just 3km long and 2km wide.
However, this doesn't prevent it from being a paradise for many people, especially diving enthusiasts.
The interior of the island is filled with steep, rocky cliffs. This rocky terrain extends from the interior of the island to the ocean and has created a dramatic 'drop-off' - a sort of vertical canvas of marine life - that divers never seem to tire of.
Take a bus or taxi from Kuala Terengganu to Dungun, and then board a boat at the jetty to reach Pulau Tenggol. From Kuantan, take a bus to Kemaman at Jalan Besar Terminal. If you are coming from Kuala Terengganu, take the bus to Kemaman at the Syed Hussin Central Bus.
