Tiomanís beaches were filmed for the 1958 movie, South Pacific as Bali Hai and in the 1970ís Time Magazine selected Tioman as one of the worlds most beautiful islands.
The Tioman Surf Festival will be hosted mainly at Kampung Juara. It is the second largest village on Tioman but also one of the quietest with regards to tourism. With its fine white sand and crystal clear water; it creates an ideal location to hold the event. By the end of November every year a North Eastern wind blows, creating good swell and perfect waves ideal for surfing, body boarding, wind surfing and even kite surfing.
Mentawak, located in Kampung Juara, was also the featured surf spot during the Tioman Surfing Event 2012 Vol.1 and Vol.2 where 3- 15 feet waves were available for the competitors to ride and show off their skills and abilities.
Previously, Juara could only be reached by sea taxi but recently a 7 kilometer concrete road was built connecting Juara to the main village (Tekek Village), making it accessible by 4-wheel drive. The 40-minute road trip to Juara is an assured and exploratory experience.
