    If you enjoy people watching and variety of dining options, Long Beach is the place to go. You can find everything from lower-end to the more premium meals—though they are mostly either of Malay, Thai, Western or seafood varieties. The vibrant beach environment is great and it especially bustles at night with party music. There are multiple fire shows at night happening in different places between 7.30-8.30pm on the northern part of the beach. But the main highlight is the one happening around 10pm or 11pm at Black Tip Beach Bar (check the exact time with the bar).

    We have joined a few snorkeling trip with Pirate Snorkeling Service and Taxi, which is a small booth located just in front of Sea Voice Divers.

    Ricky, the owner, is an honest guys and reliable. He is skillful and we feel very safe in his speedboat. Do prepare own snack and water and a bit of cash if joining the long trip, so that you able to enjoy lunch at fisherman village.

    We had an enjoyable snorkeling experience when joining Ricky. We get to swim with sea turtle, sharks, and able to see a lot of beautiful fish.

    Such a great time diving with the Turtle Bay team. Everyone is so kind, helpful and professional. Very responsive to requests and made it effortless to book and dive as much as I wanted (within reason) at a super reasonable price. Can’t wait to go back.

    I did the open water diver with anti gravity diver and my experience was wonderful from first contact all the way through the course. My instructor was Sue, she made learning diving fun and exciting so it was super enjoyable to finally learn to dive. They are quite flexible in scheduling the courses in case of delays or other things!

    Fantastic dive centre right in the midst of Long Beach, Perhentian Kecil. The staff were great, knowledgable and fun. My daughter did a few discovery dives and loved it. Saw turtles, sharks, rays, eels, sea snake, and so many fish and coral. Have been diving for twenty years and Temple of the Sea was one of the best dives ever.
    Would thoroughly recommend Panrama.

    With an array of dive companies to choose from on the Perhentian Islands it was very difficult to know which one to go with. We were staying on Long Beach so explored all the options in the area, they all looked good but Lekker stood out for its fresh appearance, welcoming reception and enthusiastic staff.
    We did 5 dives with the team throughout our holiday. Aslan and Nicole the owners, were hands on and very helpful. The whole team were friendly happy and very professional. Sadly the visibility was not quite as we had hoped for due to some unusual bad weather but Apis, Saho and Nicola led our dives very well and they, together with the boat captains made each dive a memorable and fun experience.

    An absolutely unforgettable experience, I cannot recommend Sea Voice Divers enough. The dive school itself is so chill and relaxing; located on a quiet beach, it is probably the most tranquil experience I’ve ever had.

    Myself and a friend stayed for 4 days and completed the open water diver course. We had Man as our instructor who was amazing! He’s so funny and always joking around, but super informative with his briefs and I felt 100% safe with him on every dive. Thank you Man, you’re an absolute legend.

    The rest of the staff are equally as friendly and make you feel so welcome in their dive school. Overall, the vibes are just immaculate and the diving is incredible. Look no further than Sea Voice Divers if you’re looking to dive in the Perhentian Islands.

    Outstanding dive center! Miki is one of the most professional divemasters I’ve ever met. She’s amazing in defining your technique, and gave me the feeling I was looking for during the diving. She’s a good communicator and she respects your limits.

    Having fun while diving safely is the most important subject at this dive school!

    Btw: equipment is new and very comfortable, mares and aqualung.

    Spice Diver is the ultimate choice! If you're seeking a small-scale diving club with attentive instructors who take the time to understand your needs and desires, then Spice Diver is the place to go! I completed my advanced open water certification in fantastic conditions; it exceeded all my expectations! Huge thanks to Musky, Gérard, and Muhammad for this extraordinary experience! I can't wait for the opportunity to dive with you again 😍

    I've done my WAVE 1 with Howie. This guy is just a legend. I even ended up at the restaurant with him and Chan after the course for good meal and laughs. It's always hard for me to trust people and I felt truly confident to be trained by Howie. He is super flexible and super super super kind. He will know how to talk to you in all the situations you can imagine. I feel so glad I could meet him and really hope I could meet him again around the world for more freediving sessions. Thanks Howie !

    We stayed here for 4 nights. Our Room was right at the diving centre and we were lucky to have a great view at the ocean that we could wake up to everyday. The room itself was very basic with a bed and a fan. The accomodation had shared bathrooms which wasn‘t a problem for us. The staff was very kind and it felt like a little community. Staying at the OhLaLa was by far the cheapest option to stay at the Long Beach and if you don‘t want to go out to eat you could also cook there, which was included in the price.
    All in all we were more than happy having picked this accomodation for our stay at the Long Beach.

    VERY recommendable place to dive! I went there because it was recommended to me on Pulau Redang. Best choice ever to do my OWD course there!
    Very helpful in organizing the trip (thanks Rais).All the people are very professional and helpful, experienced, patient (thanks Rizal 😉) and its a lot of fun. Equipment is well maintained.
    Rooms are simple but clean and comfy and reasonably priced.
    Very friendly atmosphere, you get breakfast every day, have dinner together, enjoy the best fish BBQ by Chef Adam 👌 and have a good time. Feels like a little family 👌💪go there and have a good time, also when you don't stay there...everybody is welcome !!
    I'm glad I did my OWD with you guys, YOU ROCK 🤟

    It was my first travel in two years since Covid and I am glad my husband had made a good choice in choosing Angel Diver for our 5-day trip to the Perhentian Island.

    We are travelling with a group of friends, who took the open water course with Instructor Dailos. The group was a bit anxious at first as some of them were not very good at swimming but Dailos definitely did a good job and taught them all the skills and techniques while maintaining the good fun!

    My husband and I did fun dives with Dailos, Ana and Ylenie who were all very experienced instructors and knew the dive sites very well. The dive requirements were well mantained and the dive shop was well organised.

    I would highly recommend Angel Diver to anyone who wants to explore the underwater world.

    **However**, since we were travelling during the end of Ramadan and the start of Hari Raya and the island is mainly operated by local Malay, most of the restaurants were closed in the morning, so no breakfasts were served. Eventually, when the restaurants were opened, they were overloaded with orders ( at one dinner it took us 3 hours to have our food on the table since we placed the order). So you might want to check with the local traditions and bring some foods yourself just in case.

    We were a group of 6 friends staying in Perhentian Kecil for 4 nights. We chose this place due to its good reviews and it did not disappoint!

    The location is perfect. You have one of the best spots on long beach. The team running the place are super helpful and always making you feel welcome. The only point to improve are the toilets.

    As for the diving, they are very professional about everything and the equipment provided is in good shape. They have good prices and knowledgable guides.

    Overall, I think this is one of the best spots in Perhentian Kecil, both for scuba diving and for accommodation.
