If you've been thinking about a holiday to Tioman Island, then well done for picking an awesome spot for some well-deserved leisure. Tioman truly is a little slice of sun-kissed paradise, with a gorgeous blue sea, paradise beaches and several delightful resorts to choose from.
That said, keep in mind that the rather capricious Mersing River mouth and at times limited tidal water depth make for less than regular ferry departure times. The reason being that the vessel has to follow the high tide mark on a daily basis. As such, it's best to book your seats early, so you don't run into any unpleasant surprises upon arrival to Mersing Harbour Centre, such as a fully booked-up ferry to Tioman.
Of course the good news is that this, shall we say, somewhat challenging accessibility is at least part of the reason Tioman has retained its perfect and still pristine tropical island state. Yes, the flipside of the coin is that the ferry is best booked early. Mind you, once you've done just that and you subsequently arrive on this gorgeous little isle of dreams, you'll find, like countless others, that Tioman is very, very rewarding.
