pulau tenggol

Tenggol Island is another fascinating diving destination which is situated only 45 minutes from the coast of Kuala Dungun in the southern part of Terengganu state. It is a small island only 3 kilometers long and 2 kilometers wide. Yet it is not a factor which can hinder it from being regarded as a paradise especially for those who are fond of scuba diving activity.

The inland part of the island is covered with steep rock edges. The rocky edges starts from the inland part and continues into the sea forming a steep underwater edge just like a canvas wall for the marine life which is the favourite spot for scuba divers.


Be careful with the strong current in Tenggol Island if you are diving here. Most of the diving sessions are planned during the intermission of the high and low tides during the calm sea. Even though the sea current may be strong, but it is suitable for drift diving.
