Pulau Tulai is a small island off the coast of Tioman, more popularly known as 'Coral Island'. Located about eight nautical miles north of Tioman's west coast, the island can be seen clearly from the beachfront of Salang Village, the closest access point by speedboat. It is almost always included in any round-island snorkelling trip offered by tour operators and hotels.
A favourite snorkelling spot, the sea waters around the island are rich with coral reefs and marine life while some famous dive sites can be found within its vicinity, such as Chebeh. Tour boats will land first at Pasir Panjang, the longest beach stretch on the island with relatively shallow waters. A second or third snorkelling session later will lead to Genting Bay and Batu Malang Rocks for deep water coral viewing.
