Tioman Dive Resort

Tioman Dive Resort
Tioman Dive Resort ABC

Tioman Dive Resort has great resort-style rooms as well as budget-friendly dorm rooms. It’s located in the middle of ABC, near the jetty, so it is easy to get to Tioman Dive Resort.

ABC is a nice bay with a nice beach and quiet village. You will probably spot monkeys and monitor lizards while you are staying here!

While not connected by road to the rest of the island (like most villages on Tioman), you are able to easily walk or ride into Tekek, the main town on the island, thanks to an over-water walkway.

However, you don’t need to leave ABC as there are plenty of eating options right here.
