My friends and I joined the fun dive package (3D2N) in July 2016. Our instructors (Wai and Chua) are professional, friendly and caring. At first a few dives, I was panicked when diving. Thanks for their patience and guidance, eventually I have overcome my fear of diving and could dive freely underwater. Recommended for those divers who are not confident... More

One of the BEST. No fancy restaurant, no luxury resort, what you have here is something like going back home. Not the one in the city, is in the Kampung.

The dive instructors are passion in their work. They mainly focus on providing diving courses, although they also do leisure dives. They own small boat for dive trip, expect bumpy ride... More

Stargazing at night can be dangerous! you will probably end up with neck pain because the stars up there is always impressively beautiful. Falling asleep every night with the sound of waves crashing on the beach.....nuff said. Once we met wild dolphins during a... More

This part of the island is very new to me, I've never alighted on Genting before and not to mention dive here but to my... More

Dive period : 30/8 -2/9/14. Location : Far right from the jetty. For those who prefer a more quiet & relax environment, this is the one. Sandy beach front. Service : Excellent. First of all, shop assistant Tommy was there waiting at the jetty to take care of all our luggages, so we juz had a pleasant 10 minutes walk... More
