It could be lucky if you are at the season of turtle laying eggs. I had an experience seeing the turtle laying eggs. The lights and generators of the island will be turn off. Sit and wait patiently to allow the turtle to come ashore.
Once you hear the sound that the turtle is digging the hole, you have to crawl slowly and quietly, not too near it. When the sound stops, crawl slowly to it and shine the hole with a small torch. Wow! You can see the eggs coming out one by one.
Remember, just watch. Don't steal any eggs.....
It is also fun to go around the rocky part of the island. Not forget to visit the peak to have to look of the lagoon. Just make sure you take your camera to capture some nice and beautiful moments.
I always will choose the dive instructor/ divemaster to bring me to the dive sites. There are a lot of dive sites in Tenggol Island.
1. Tokong Laut
2. Tokong Burung
3. Batu Chachang
4. Tokong Timur
5. Tanjung Api
6. Coral Garden
7. Rajawali Reef
8. The Highway
9. The Fishbowl
10. Gua Rajawali
If driving license is valid, I can suggest self drive. At least I can go to the washroom when I needed a stop. However, getting some buddy to come along would be more appropriate unless you are a midnight owl. Used to travel around 3.30am and took me 5 hours to reach.
I always get a bus from the Putra Terminal ( near The Mall/ Pan Pacific Hotel ) at 9.30 or 10.00pm. From there, the bus will travel night up to Kuala Terengganu. So, it is advisable to inform the driver that you want to get off at Dungun. With the bus having a few stop along the way, it is hardly sleep well.
