Kuala Terengganu Holidays

On the tranquil east coast of Malaysia, Kuala Terengganu and the surrounding area offers palm lined beaches and some great dive sites. A short flight from Kuala Lumpur means this is a great destination to twin with the vibrant capital city and the peaceful nature of this region is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing holiday or honeymoon away from it all.

The dive season here starts around March and finishes in September so travel between these times to experience the full beauty of the coral around Tenggol Island, a short speedboat ride away. If you're looking for a peaceful and undeveloped beach resort with excellent diving on the doorstep look no further.

    "If you are a wildlife lover, the Tanjong Jara Resort near Kuala Terengganu has its own turtle hatchery and sometimes gets turtles nesting on their beaches."
