I speak for most Marijoinlah Connoisseurs when I say we live for the quiet island retreats where we can session worry free while peacefully getting in touch with our inner self. When you live in, or are visiting Malaysia, you are literally spoiled by the number of Islands you can get to in less than 24 hours from wherever you are in the country for a retreat filled with sun, jays and munchies! This list will help you decide where you are going to take your crew to next for the Marijoinlah retreat which will hit the spot!
Tioman Island offers every possible shade of paradise. There's cascading waterfalls, rigorous jungle hikes that take you past orange blossoms under an evergreen canopy, and a wide sampling of laid-back villages that present a tapestry of cultures and curiosities. On top of that there's the gorgeous sea.
You could even squeeze in some duty free shopping while you are here although it’s no Langkawi. Some of the resorts are hidden and laid back while some others cater for the more outgoing connoisseurs closer to the area with bustling nightlife!
If you visit some of the resorts, you are sure to bump into “vacationers” who came to the Island 5-10 years ago and never left. Share a jay with them and listen to their stories, you’d be amazed! The Island has an extremely friendly local population and
Despite growing popularity, Tioman retains unspoiled feel with an authentic village lifestyle.
Located in Kuala Nerus District, Terengganu, Malaysia, it is one of the largest islands off the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. It is famous for its crystal clear waters and white sandy beaches. It is one of nine islands, which form a marine sanctuary park offering snorkeling and diving opportunities for tourists.
The waters around also contain two historic shipwrecks: The H.M.S. Prince of Wales and H.M.S. Repulse, which sank here at the start of World War II, setting the stage for the Japanese occupation of Malaya. This paradise island is perfect for snorkelling, swimming, scuba- diving, jungle trekking, boating and canoeing
Bring along your vaporizer for some stealth vaping :)
Locals will know exactly what you’re up to and even extend the clip fingers when you’re passing the jay around. Hey, but you’re on holiday so share the love right? Or to really be session-ing on the go, use a Twisty Glass Blunt instead.
The Perhentian Islands are a small group of beautiful, coral-fringed islands off the coast of northeastern Malaysia in the state of Terengganu, not far from the Thai border.
The two main islands are Pulau Perhentian Besar ("Big Perhentian Island") and Pulau Perhentian Kecil ("Small Perhentian Island"). Kecil attracts more travellers as it has cheaper accommodation, while Besar is a little more expensive and caters more to families and those who want to avoid the backpacker party scene.
If you’re there during the right time of the year, you could even chill with the turtles at Turtle Sanctuary Beach. I know what you’re already thinking so please do not introduce the turtles to Marijoinlah
Rawa Island is a coral island in Mersing District, Johor, Malaysia. It is popular with tourists from Malaysia and Singapore, who come to enjoy its relatively unspoiled white sand beaches, snorkelling and scuba diving.Theree is a daily ferry service from Mersing.
"Rawa" is the local term for white doves, which are abundant in the island.
In this small island, here are no proper roads, only a few walkways. One side of the island is a beach covered with white sand, while the other side has a rocky vertical cliff. And the water is amazingly clear. There are no shortages of wildlife fishes, squids, jellyfish, octopuses, Malayan sea eagles, and reptiles. Also sharks Blacktip reef sharks can be found feeding in the sea off Rawa.
The island of Kapalai, just 15 kilometres off Sipadan, was a beautiful island two hundred years ago, but now remains as only a sand bar. Erosion has reduced the island to sea level and the village now sits on the edge of the extensive Ligitan Reefs. Global Warming is real buddy.
The buildings rest on stilts resting on the underwater reef and there is only one private resort on the island, with the rest of the island uninhabited.
This is the place to be if you really want to drop off the grid for a while.
