Dive. Surf. Swim. Ride. Play by the beach.
Malaysia with over 200 islands, soft white beaches, and countless secluded bays lined with picturesque limestone caves and caverns is one of the most fascinating destinations for water sports activities in the world such as jet skiing, wind surfing, diving in Sipadan, kayaking, snorkeling in Kapalai, paragliding, beach volleyball and more. Malaysia’s coral reefs are home to one of the most prolific congregations of underwater life on the planet, forming an ecosystem some is rivaled only by the rainforests of the Amazon and the Congo. This makes it perfect for snorkeling and diving. For wind surfers, try our north-easterly winds, 20 knots or more, on the East Coast from February to March. The surf can hit a 3-metre peak if you’re lucky! Wind surfing is also a popular option on the west coast, available at most beaches especially in Penang and Port Dickson. Horse riding on the beach is also available in Batu Feringghi, Penang.
What’s more, Terengganu’s Perhentian Kecil Island, Pahang Tioman Island’s Juara Beach and Langkawi’s Tanjung Rhu were ranked among the Top 50 of the World’s 100 Best Beaches by CNN. These are the places for great water sports. So get the most out of your vacation here by indulging in water sports.
