Rhu Hentian Island


Perhaps Pulau Perhentian, Pulau Redang and some other pulau are too famous and ‘over heated’ to many people, Pulau Rhu Hentian which is only 15 nautical miles from offshore Kuala Besut is not known to most people. It is indeed a new discovered and developing island in the tourism industry in East Coast.


Because it is so close to the mainland, Pulau Rhu Hentian is accessible through Kuala Besut 20 to 30 minutes by boat. The island is not resident at the moment. This no doubt is an added value advantage for holiday seekers. The ecology system on the island and the marine life remain unspoiled due to this reason.


Though Pulau Rhu Hentian is a new born baby in the tourism industry in the country, some water activities such as swimming, snorkeling and diving are possible to be arranged through some travel agencies. Apart from this, due to the tiny size of this island enable visitor to make a 2 hours ‘orientation’ trek as a ‘get to know you’ activity.


News gathered from the state government that a resort, the Rhu Hentian Resort is being planned by the Fisheries Association of Kuala Besut as the first step to develop this little beautiful island. Perhaps by then you can add this new alternative to your itinery when planning your holiday.
