    It's a good short, but steep hike up rewarded with a breathtaking view. Wished they fixed the jetty so more people can go down and explore. A portion of the jetty is cordoned off by barb wires, but some people attempt to climb down the missing stairs. However, you can already take a good photo even just at the top part of the stairs.

    The start of the hike is from the long beach, there is a signage near the campsite that points you to the start of the hike at the back of the camp site. The start of the hike is a bit steep, then after a few hundred meters, it will be an easy climb as the path is smooth. A few meters from the tower, you will find the two windmills cordoned by wire so you can't really touch the windmills. Follow the path around the windmills and you will see the stairs going to the Jetty. Enjoy!

    Bring your own water and some mosquito repellant.

    We had an awesome experience at Turtle Bay Divers doing our OW course! Edwin was super helpful and supportive answering questions leading up to and during the trip.

    Azwan, the instructor for our course, was extremely patient and professional with a great sense of humor. He helped us through any issues we had during the dives, was an amazing teacher and made us feel comfortable and safe.

    I had issues with my ears and equalising. Azwan made sure we descended as slow as I needed each dive which really helped. The team at Turtle Bay Divers also showed support and provided advice on how to address my ear issues.

    All round the place feels very welcoming and has a relaxed atmosphere. It feels like a family, and the whole team knows your face and name.

    We definitely recommend Turtle Bay Divers!

    Thanks again to the team for such a wonderful experience!

    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.

    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.

    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 🤟

    Let’s start with the dive centre, I brought my own equipment and they were very careful and had a separate area to store all the customers equipment. All of which was locked up at the end of the day. Every single staff member (Bart, Didi and Mat) there was friendly and very knowledgeable. I only planned to do 6 fun dives. However, I ended up adding 3 more fun dives and extending for a couple more nights because I honestly had so much fun!

    The dorm rooms are right above the dive centre. A total of 20 beds. If you’re staying there and it’s fully booked, be prepared to bring an extension because the sockets are limited. Bear in mind, the bathrooms are downstairs, by the dive centre. The dorms were clean and comfortable. Electricity on from 7pm to 7am. However, there is solar power during the day for you to charge your phones. No hairdryers allowed. They have a huge sign saying that they’re prohibited. Air conditioning very cold at night. Blankets and towels are available with a deposit.

    Let’s move on to dive sites. Overall AMAZING! So beautiful. Such a wide variety of fish and coral. If you are there, make sure to not miss SanChoy wreck! I loved it so much. The instructors Didi, Tony and Nur were very knowledgeable and patient.

    The dive centre is located in the middle of Long Beach, a few mins walk from the party but far enough that it’s not noisy at night.

    Overall, highly recommended for fun dives and stay.
