Perhentian Kecil, the small island – fisherman village and an easy walk along the coast

There are small convenience stores at the resorts, but if you want fruit and vegetables a visit to the fisherman village could be worthwhile for you.  Best done at the beginning of your stay.

 

map of the walk

There is an easy 3.2 KM walk along a paved path from there, on Perhentian Kecil, the small island, to Long Beach.
If you are staying on the big island you can get a water taxi across.  The minimum number of persons is two.

The path is a bit undulating, and hasn’t been maintained, but mostly it’s in good condition. There’s even a toilet block along the way.
