Pulau Perhentian Day 2

Our second day at Perhentian Island.

Taking a stroll along the torqouise beach, enjoying the sunny weather and just admiring the beautiful scenery, definitely a picture perfect.  Never had enough no matter how long I stared at the blue ocean.

Early morning stroll near the beach.

We had our breakfast near the beach and prepared for our snorkeling trip soon after.

We visited 4 popular spots including The Turtle Point, The Shark Point and The Light house.
The view at the first stop was breathtaking, coral and marine life are abundance. Colorful fish including Baracuda everywhere, it was like you were surrounded by them wherever you go.

Our boat men made sure that we got to snorkel and spot the turtle at The Turtle Point. He made a few rounds to make sure we stopped where the turtle was resting. A breathtaking experience, being in the water with a live big size turtle.

   And initially none of us spotted the shark when we snorkeled at the The Shark Point. 
But one of the boat men dived into the water and asked us to follow him, he kept on saying, 'you came all the way, you have to see the shark', and yes, we finally saw a shark. It was probably a baby shark, about 1 meter long, grey color (Not that scary White Shark, Thanked God!). I was speechless when the shark swam passed right in front of me and the boat men signaled to me not to move. Never forget that very moment.

Things were different at The Light House. We dived into the water but after a moment everybody quickly swam back to the boat. The current there was too strong and the view under the ocean was a bit scary, all dark and very deep. After all we were in the middle of the ocean.

This is such an amazing experience. 
I've snorkeled at Pulau Tioman and Pulau Pangkor before, but nothing can compare to this. 
Pulau Perhentian is way better in every sense.
