Dive site Of Pulau Tioman - Malaysia
Pulau Tioman
  Pulau Tioman or Tioman Island, lies about 36 nautical miles west off Malaysia's east coast and is the largest of a group of 64 volcanic islands. With a size of about 36km long and 19 km at its greatest island width.
According to local legend, the mystical Tioman Island is the resting ground of a magical dragon princess who whilst flying from China to her beloved prince in Singapore, sought solace in the crystal clear water of South China Seas. So pleased was she with the surrounding charm, that she discontinued her journey, and search for happiness in order to give pleasure and comfort to weary passing seafarers as well as providing shelter and refreshment to fisherman by turning herself into this beautiful island.
Tioman is a great island with good reefs for snorkelers and divers, a haven for boating, water-skiing and windsurfing under the tropical sun.
