Taxi From Singapore To Tioman Island
Location of Tioman Island
Inside a group of islands off the east coast of Malaysia you’ll find a tiny hidden world called Tioman Island. You can reach the islands by land transport, the only modes of transportation being either the more popular ferry or small planes.
Most travellers choose to travel to the Mersing Ferry Terminal by private taxi before taking a boat to the island. If you are traveling from Singapore, it’s approximately 148km or just about 2-hour direct drive.
At Mersing Jetty, you’ll board a boat with 1 to 2 hours of travel time on the water to reach the island itself.
Why Travel To Tioman Island?
While many of the surrounding islands are getting over taken by resorts and the quickly growing tourist industry, Tioman has remained both densely forested as well as sparsely inhabited.
1. Bio-Diverse Marine Ecosystem
The local residents are dedicated to preserving this pristine environment for many generations to come. Because of this noble goal you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy nature at its best. The island is home to over 45 different species of animals, 138 different species of birds, as well as a spectacular bio-diverse marine ecosystem.
2. Adventure At Tioman Island
You’ll want to keep your eyes on the sky to watch for the beautiful creatures that are hard to find elsewhere because of their limited population.

You’ll find a variety of challenges including stone stairs, fallen tree trunks and more to make your walk in nature even more exciting.
4. Scuba Diving
Out in the water you’ll find the area is idea for scuba diving as the entire island is completely surrounded by an underwater world of coral reef. The local attention to preventing pollution and poaching has created an ideal location to study marine life as it’s truly meant to be.
5. White Sandy Beaches
Back up on shore you’ll be mesmerized by miles of white sandy beaches which are truly the most picturesque at sunset and sunrise.
