Although badged as a diving resort, what they should really be trumpeting is their work as a turtle hatchery. You can’t miss the hatchery -- it is on your left as you walk up from the lovely beach here to the restaurant and reception area. This is one of the few beaches in the Perhentians where turtles still return to lay their eggs and the staff and volunteers work hard to protect the eggs from poachers and to transfer them to the hatchery after they have been laid. They’re doing an admirable job! The rooms on the other hand are a bit concrete bunkerish in appearance and really, at least to us, are a bit incongruous with the work they do. The rooms are decent -- very clean with solid bathrooms and plenty of space, so a good option for families as an extra bed easily slides in for the kids. We just wish that the cement bungalows had been built with a bit more consideration for the surrounds, because the surrounds are lovely: a totally deserted beach, crystal clear waters (with very good snorkelling we were told) and great staff. The Malaysian staffer who showed us around confided that he came here first as a guest and loved it so much he came back to help it out. You’re quite isolated here and it’s a 10 ringgit boat ride to "civilisation" (Teluk Dalam). There’s scope for a bit of hiking, but this is a real hang out, so do some diving perhaps and just savour the isolation. Overall prices are a bit high for the standard but this was one of the more untouched, yet developed beaches we saw on either of the Perhentians, so perhaps there is a premium wrapped up in that.
