Before your trip, we recommend checking with the resort for the location of its nearest pier (you can refer to the list below). Some resorts are not within walking distance from the pier, so it's best to arrange a private transferfrom the pier to the resort in advance. There are no public transports on the island.Top resorts on Pulau Tioman and its nearest pier
