I was in paradise in the perhentian islands, we stayed there for a few days to recover from the jungle and relax on the beach. They are located in the north east of malaysia, there are 2 islands close to each other, the small one, kecil and the big one besar. Most backpackers go to the small one as its cheaper. These islands are really beautiful, the water is turquoisey blue and really clear aand the sand is white, im in paradise!The place were staying is the best so far, we have our own doublebed and en suite. We spent the first day doing absolutely nothing and swimming in the sea and eating good food. The mango shakes here are amazing. The next day I went snorkelling around the island. After I got used to snorkelling, i found it really hard at first because you have to breathe in and out from your mouth only and not through your nose, but it was fantastic. We went to shark point, turtle point and 2 coral and fish points. I swam with a reef shark it was so surreal! It was really funny, the shark was chasing this poor little yellow fish and just following it around for ages. After this we went to the turtle point and it was slightly harder to spot th turtles but we managed to see a few. The fish were just amazing, we saw jelly fish, napoleon (big fish) lots of zebra coloured fish and gorgeous colourful ones. The guide would give us bread to throw in the water and all the fish would quickly swim to it. I wish I had an underwater camera it was great.
