    Looks like some awesome islands guys! Amazing. I vibe with you on traveling a little off of the beaten path. I like Phuket and Bali and all those islands but even in those spots, I stray toward the Bukit in Bali, or on the Southern tip of Phuket, where things are a bit more quiet. Beyond that though, I prefer places like Koh Lanta in Thailand, and these gems appear to align with Lanta in the quiet, serene department.

    Thanks for sharing 🙂

      Hi Ryan, thank you for your comment. I’m glad you enjoyed the article. I also prefer the more quite places or I like visiting the mainstrteam places in the off season. I find that much better 😀 And yeah Koh Lanta truly is an amazing place!

    You were right, I had never heard of these Islands until now. Thanks for putting them on my radar. Doing nothing but scuba diving, hiking, island hopping and then going back to stay in the all inclusive resorts. My kinda relaxing holiday.

    Malaysia is really high on my list, firstly for the amazing cuisine, but also I’m seeing and reading more about the beautiful country, not least these glorious islands. It’s great to read your three suggestions for less crowded islands, of the three I think the volcanic Bohey Dulang appeals the most, though the other two are very striking and the diving opportunity at Sipadan appeals.

    I could look at these pictures tropical islands throughout the day. Agree with you that it’s so much more fun to visit offbeat tracks which are not on tourist map. I love reading your blog for the same reason because you always have such great insights on some of the unknown non-touristy wonders

      Thanks, Sinjana. Trust me, it’s super easy to be a photographer on these islands. The water color is amazing and there aren’t many people around, which is always great for taking awesome photos.

    Three months of Southeast Asia backpacking adventure would have been super fun! I would be in the same category of not knowing about these three tropical islands of Malaysia, though have been in the country for quite some time. Actually, no one suggests visiting Bohey Dulang, Mantabuan or Sipadan Islands. But to be honest, we did not venture towards Semporna at all. Thanks for the tip on ATMs. As you mention about here, I think the party scene is not very high even in other beach places in the country. I would let our friends who are still in Malaysia know about these so they have an option for a relaxed get away!

      That’s true, Navita no one really talks about Bohey Dulang. Maybe because there aren’t any places to stay around but these islands are perfect for one-day trips. It can’t get too crowded because the number of daily visitors is limited 😀 that makes them the perfect destination for a relaxed getaway

    Post like these make us see places in a country which are less touristy and are so helpful. Wish I had read this before my trip which was purely kl and Langkawi only. Bohey Dulang Island looks like the most beautiful Island one can experience. Im a sucker for white sand and blue waters and this really has some jaw-dropping beaches. It’s a bit tough to get to looks like but worth it completely. Thanks for sharing

      There’s always a next time, Amar 🙂 Bohey Dulang is to this day one of my favorite islands, it’s absolutely gorgeous.

    I’ve never been to Malaysia so it’s probably not a huge surprise I haven’t heard of any of these, but they all look amazing. Definitely on the list for some time in the near future. Always good to get some helpful tips for help get off the beaten track a little.

    I love visiting small islands like these because they are so much better preserved, and it’s a nice break away from the hustle and bustle of most resort/party beach towns. I think I might get a little antsy after staying here for a couple of days, so I would probably limit my stay to just one night. Great finds – I’ve marked them in my map for next time!

    Malaysia seems to have some fantastic islands! You’re right, I’ve never heard about any of these; I am guessing they’re more awesome because they’re not so popular and thus, more remote! Bohey Dulang Island seems to be my favourite, I mean, look at those views! With not much to do in terms of activities, I see it as the perfect destination for a relaxing vacation!
