The Private Beautiful Beach
Stayed on the idyllic and quieter side of Perhentian Kecil at Shari-la Resort. You got me right, not Shangri-la but Shari-la :) It consists of chalets and was given a pretty decent one except that the lighting in the rooms are a little too dim and we kind of have problems with the lock due to the high salt content in the air causing the locks to rust a little. The resort have access to a private beach which I think is cool. Not sure coincidentally that area is called Lover's Beach haha.

Eating AreaThe buffet fare was a little on the disappointment side. However on the last day, they actually served us dishes instead of buffet because there were too few guest and the food was good!
The water was really clear. You can actually see the fishies swimming in the water and that is how clean and clear the water is. Plenty of fishes, corals and sea cucumbers :) Do order their milkshakes when you are at the beach. For RM6, they are a steal and really delicious!
Snorkeling there was great. There were all kinds of fishes and so abundant in marine life that even when you stand at the jetty, you can spot sting rays! Well, I don't know all the fishie names but they were really nice and colourful and a wide variety. We saw turtles too! In fact, two! Unfortunately I did not manage to see the baby sharks even when the guide kept on saying that it's there, it's there. Sigh! The corals were abundant at Rawa Islands and the water was really shallow. Got some souvenir scratches from there :(
Saw an interesting sales pitch. Haha.
I am considering coming here again!
