Thinking of the next holiday destination to visit when in Malaysia? I'm loving a little vacation spot we visited at Perhentian Island on the east coast of Malaysia.

Just a 30 minute boat ride away from Kuala Besut (a cute and sleepy town in Terengganu), we headed off to Bubu Long Beach on Perhentian Island Kecil.

Bubu Long Beach is a small paradise located on a white, sandy beach. Leon and I loved taking walks, past beach hut cafes and chalets along the way. The snorkelling is fantastic at Perhentian Island. There are barracuda, parrot fish and even little "Nemos" hiding in the coral or  swimming close to the beach shore. Snorkelling and diving trips can be easily arranged at the resort or at one of the many stalls on along long beach.

My favourite part about Bubu Long Beach Resort are the freshly baked croissants and espresso for breakfast and one can't forget the Cocktail Hour in the evening, a real highlight. From 5pm  they offer guests a range of free drinks including cocktails, how good is that?  My favourite Bubu drink was the 'Tinggi-Tinggi', made of a delicious concoction of local fruit juice.

We had a room with great views overlooking the garden and beach below, a beautiful place to wake every morning before a day of fun activities; snorkelling in the amazing reefs or putting your feet up in  beach chair under an umbrella.

Bubu we'll miss you and we cant wait to come back!
