Fishing Tioman

Unique and Exotic Fish Species

The waters around Tioman Island are perfect for recreational and sports fishing – as one of the last bastions of marine biodiversity in East Malaysia, Tioman Island is home to thousands of rare, beautiful and exotic fish species. Many of these species have disappeared from the other parts of the world where they used to reside, and can now only be found on island reefs on the East Malaysian Coast such as the reefs around Tioman Island– so Tioman Island is perfect for sports fishing enthusiasts looking for that extra special fishing experience. Only in Tioman, can you find fish this special!

100% Legal and Ethical

For those worried about the legality of fishing in Tioman, no worries! Although Tioman Island used to be designated as a protected area under Malaysian law, many such areas have since been un-gazetted by the Malaysian government in order to help local businesses, so most of the island is free game for all you sports fishing fans! There are many designated marine park zones, but they only extend up to a mile beyond the Tioman Island land area.
