This article will introduce you to one of the beautiful mini-islands and snorkelling located in Pahang – Coral Island (Tulai Island), near Tioman Island. This is the snorkelling paradise of Tioman!
The island can be seen clearly from the beachfront of Salang Village, the nearest speedboat access point, which is about eight nautical miles north of Tioman’s west coast. It is almost always included in every tour operator or hotel’s round-island snorkeling outing.
The best part of Coral Island is clear and clean seawater. This beautiful seawater also leads to the different water activities of snorkels and scuba diving, which these water activities are definitely a must-try for you if you are to visit Coral Island. In order to reach the Island, you have to travel by boat. This will thus give you a new experience of travelling while enjoying the sea breeze and the beauty of the seawater during your boat ride. Besides, it is also a wonderful opportunity for you to take pictures with the beautiful Mother Nature in remembrance of your trip to Coral Island.
Many would not know this but Coral Island is a marine park with the main objective to preserve and protect the ecosystem on the island. Visiting Coral Island will thus help you to reinforce the importance of ecosystem balance. If you are going with your children, this trip to Coral Island will also help you to educate your children on the importance of preserving Mother Nature so that their future generations will still be able to enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature.
The corals here are in excellent condition, and as a result, the waters here are teeming with fish. On a sunny day, a long outcropping of rock perpendicular to the beach protects the key reef patch, allowing for crystal-clear visibility
If you are a fan of water activities such as snorkelling and scuba diving, Coral Island will definitely not disappoint you. Due to the clear and clean seawater, you will also obtain the opportunity to take underwater photographs. This is the perfect opportunity for you to observe the underwater life up close; and at the same time, the photographs you take underwater will add to the uniqueness of your collections.
Although the island’s sea is clear and clean, you must also remember that the main goal of the island is to preserve the beauty of Mother Nature. Thus, certain activities such as coral collection, speed boat racing, water-skiing, and so on are prohibited as these activities will disturb the balance of the ecosystem.
However, you are for sure allowed to take pictures of the beautiful corals and also the breathtaking sea view to be shared with your friends and families when you go back home.
