Villages & Location with Ferry Stopping Points

Tioman Island (Malay language: Pulau Tioman) is a mukim and an island in Rompin District, Pahang, Malaysia.  It is located 32 kilometres (20 miles) off the east coast of the state,and is some 20 kilometres (12 miles) long and 12 kilometres (7.5 miles) wide. It has eight main villages, the largest and most populous being Kampung Tekek in the north. The densely forested island is sparsely inhabited, and is surrounded by numerous coral reefs, making it a popular scuba diving spot. There are also a lot of resorts and chalets around the island which has duty-free status.

Its beaches have been claimed to be depicted in the 1958 movie, South Pacific as Bali Hai but available evidence suggests this is a false claim.  In the 1970s, TIME Magazine selected Tioman as one of the world's most beautiful islands. The island is served by ferries from the Malaysian mainland. Up to 2013, Berjaya Air serviced the island with a propeller plane service from Changi Airport in Singapore. Nowadays, there is only one company operating the route from Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Subang, Selangor to Tioman Island.  The company is called Systematic Aviation Services, and with a fleet of small single prop Cessna aircraft, the trip takes around 1 hr 15 minutes. The island is part of Pahang territory, although it is geographically closer to mainland Johor than to mainland Pahang, and is accessed via ferry service from the Johorean coastal town of Mersing.  (From Wkipedia).

The are 8 main villages (or Kampungs) inside the Tioman Island - Kg. Genting, Kg. Paya, Kg. Tekek, Kg. Ayer Batang, Kg. Salang, Kg. Juara, Kg. Mukut and Kg. Nipah.  The 1st ferry arriving  terminal is at Kg. Genting and then moves up to Kg. Paya, Kg. Tekek and Kg. Salang terminals which is the last and then reverse back to Kg. Genting before leaving for Mersing Ferry Terminal on the mainland.

Villages (Kampungs) / Description


Kg. Genting   Contact Us


Kg. Genting is a large village along the west coast of Pulau Tioman, located among Paya and Nipah Village. It occupies a one.5km stretch of seashore with a hilly backyard of lush rainforest.  A favourite spot for mainland locals and Singaporean vacationers, Genting includes a sizeable collection of spending budget hotels and neighborhood dining establishments clumped tightly along the beachfront, the weekends ordinarily bustling with action, persons and karaoke music throughout the evening.  The sea here is moderately rocky, but the waters are clear though the big boulders give the landscape some aesthetic character.  Most of the resorts provide  . .......

Kg. Tekek   Contact Us


Kg. Tekek is the capital village of all the villages in Pulau Tioman.  It is located along a 3km coastal stretch at the island's central west.  Essentially a zarooarian town with more urban infrastructure, including retail shops, bank, school, main road, water taxi station, ferry terminal, airport, police station, marine park and jetty complex. While lacking the rural charm, coral reefs and verdant greenery of smaller villages, Tekek is still popular among visitors for its wealth of tourist conveniences, modern facilities and duty-free goods. A cluster of hotel, motels and chalets lie along the southern beach stretch, providing mostly budget accommodation.  ....... See more images

Kg. Ayer Batang   Contact Us


Kg. Ayer Batang is a boulder strewn bay, rather peaceful with numerous small budget chalets and inn that offer good accommodation.

Salang, the northernmost village of Tioman Island.  Kg. Ayer Batang is endowed with relatively high privacy and is an attraction to backpackers due to the cheap budget chalets there.  The soft sand, tall trees and beautiful scenery make it an ideal place to relax and unwind. .......

Kg. Juara is the only village of Tioman located in the east coast of the island facing the South China Sea.  Its beach is large and is one of the best in Tioman Island.

Kg. Mukut   Contact Us

Kg. Mukut is a village at the southern tip of Pulau Tioman, a hot spot for mountain, waterfalls, nature and sea attractions and activities on the island. The village has small bits of beaches scattered along its shore, but visitors are enticed to explore its vast backdrop of granite mountains and old rainforest, where the famous 'Dragon Horns' of Tioman (Gunung Nenek Semukut or Twin Peaks) and the majestic Asah Waterfall reside.  Accessible by speedboat from the nearest jetty, there are only a few budget hotels here that provide basic full-board accommodation, but a few boutique resorts slightly northwest of the coast cater for luxury accommodation - .......

Kg. Nipah   Contact Us


Kg. Nipah is a remote bay along Pulau Tioman's west coast, located south of Kg. Genting and  north of Kg. Mukut.  Named after a local palm tree, it's a haven for visitors seeking an isolated getaway in undisturbed, natural surroundings. The beach is a pristine half-km stretch of golden sands fringed by lush rainforest, with a calm lagoon lined with mangroves hidden behind the shore. It has a serene beach, is rugged and isolated, the place to go for those wanting to leave the world behind as the village lacks internet and mobile phone access.  The waters of Nipah are also home to phosphorescent seaweed, and actually glow at night.  An aerial view of this village rapidly .......
